From Poster Posse,
Today we are BEYOND excited to share our latest official collaboration. We were extremely fortunate to partner with Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary to help promote one of our most anticipated films of the year, “Kong: Skull Island.” The “Eighth Wonder Of The World” has been an iconic character in film and pop culture history ever since he was conceived by Edgar Wallace and Merian C. Cooper and exploded onto the Silver Screen in 1933. This reboot of the franchise is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and touts a stellar cast including: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, and John C Reilly. It’s an action-packed, no holds barred, thrill ride that uttertly brings Kong to a whole new generation of fans and cements his place in present day mythology. Here is a look at all the pieces from our official collaboration for “Kong: Skull Island.”
KONG is an influential cinematic icon that has inspired nothing short of a pop culture movement. His references appear in more than television and movies… They are also found in music, fashion and art. Kong is a source of creative inspiration for generations of fans. In celebration of his iconic status and the release of ”Kong: Skull Island,” Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment will curate a series of Kong – Tribute Art to be showcased in a limited engagement gallery at the Bottleneck Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
In addition to film marketing materials and fan art, the gallery will feature 7 original pieces from artists around the world commissioned by The Poster Posse and 3 original pieces commissioned by Bottleneck Gallery.
