Just saw this over at CBR and thought it looked a bit... well silly... which given that its about a 50 foot gorilla is a bit daft but it was all so ... over the top. Then the reveal and by gosh have they lost their sense of scale!

Mind wait until you start the King Arthur thread Goaty - now that looked just plain gash!

I wonder would he has been made that big due to the supposed Kong vs Godzilla movie that is supposed to come out? Simply so that they are of a similar scale from the outset. Otherwise a movie watching Kong bite Godzilla kneecaps may not be as exciting??

Surely Sam Jackson has enough money by now? Doe he really need to do stuff like this? He comes across as a lovely guy, but  he clearly just shows up and plays the same character in every film: it's a cool character admittedly, but he's entering Sean Connery territory at this point... Anyway, Skull Island looks potentially entertaining, even though I rewatched the Willis O'Brien Kong with the kids last week and it blew me away as always. You can never have enough Kong.

Yeah, that.

Although pretty sure the 2014 Godzilla is still twice the size at least, so I'm guessing they'd have to scale him down a bit.

I thought it looked entertainingly silly, with a real Lovecraftian vibe to the giant skeleton and giant bloody handprint, as well as a wee touch of Evangelion.

This film will either be so bad it's good or so bad it's bad!

The comics been surprisingly good, though it does have quite a disconnect with the film.

I recently watched Congo and it wasn't as bad as I recalled...a bit silly mind.
