Taking place in the 1970's, Kong: Skull Island will take a team of explorers to a remote island where they come face-to-face with an unimaginable creature - the mighty King Kong. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the angle of the plot, the size of the new King Kong and what we can expect to see when they finally drop a trailer!

The thing that most interested me was, how big do you need to make [Kong], so that when someone lands on this island and doesn’t believe in the idea of myth, the idea of wonder – when we live in a world of social and civil unrest, and everything is crumbling around us, and technology and facts are taking over – how big does this creature need to be, so that when you stand on the ground and you look up at it, the only thing that can go through your mind is: ‘That’s a god.’” Pretty big, we’re guessing? “You will see when we drop a trailer,” Vogt-Roberts teases.

Vogt-Roberts was very adamant about how different Kong: Skull Island will be compared to previous incarnations. He reiterates that next year's film has zero link to any previous King Kong film and that each of them stand alone as their own entity. Kong: Skull Island will focus more on the mythos and origin of Kong, rather than the creature's wonderment.

Keep in mind also, that Legendary and Universal have planned Kong: Skull Island to act as a semi-sequel to Gareth Edwards' Godzilla (2014) as well as a semi-prequel to 2019's Godzilla 2 that will eventually culminate in 2020 with a showdown between the two Titans in Godzilla vs. Kong.

Oh Jesus... it's not a good sign when the thing that interested him most was having a big Kong. How about an interesting story or premise first and foremost?
