Creature Features celebrates KING KONG—and this spring's biggest arrival, KONG: SKULL ISLAND from Legendary Pictures—with this multi-media gallery exhibit showcasing works from artists in the fields of film, television, fine art, comics, children’s book illustration, and more!
KING KONG debuted in 1933, courtesy of Merian C. Cooper & Ernest P. Schoedsack, coupled with Willis O'Brien's landmark stop-motion FX. The unforgettable "Eighth Wonder of the World" left a profound impression on generations of fans and filmmakers, manifesting itself in dozens of Kong-inspired movies and TV shows through the years.
From its own sequel, SON OF KONG, to Toho's Kaiju versions, Rankin/Bass' animated TV show in 1966, Dino De Laurentiis' 1976 version, to Peter Jackson's glorious homage in 2005, Kong has proved the public's unending appetite for the affectionate ape.
And, opening on May 10th, Legendary introduces Kong to a whole new generation with its exciting take on the age-old mythos, directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly.
Headlined by renowned artist, adventurer and passionate KING KONG aficionado William Stout, the show will also feature dozens of prestigious artists paying homage to whichever relevant version left an impression on them throughout the past 80+ years.
