King Kong Movie Skull Island from Legendary Pictures

We got quite the surprise when Legendary Pictures announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 that they were going to make a film based on Skull Island.

Legendary Pictures booked a large panel today at San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H, where they showed footage for their upcoming features, Godzilla, Warcraft, Crimson Peak, Blackhat, and As Above So Below. When the panel was drawing to a close, the audience thought for sure there’d be something about Pacific Rim 2, since director Guillermo del Toro was there promoting Crimson Peak and head of Legendary Thomas Tull mentioned how del Toro was working on the sequel.

The lights then went out and instead of getting a Pacific Rim 2 tease, attendees were treated to a look at new King Kong movie Skull Island.
