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.
A short while back we posted on our Facebook page about a contest from Poster Spy and Legendary Entertainment to create posters for Kong: Skull Island, well they have been so impressed that they have extended the contest to the film's release date. Below we have highlighted some of these incredible posters already submitted and go to Poster Spy's website to submit your own as well.
"Legendary and Poster Spy are inviting you to create an alternative poster for their upcoming movie KONG SKULL ISLAND, one of the biggest movies of the year, and possibly one of the most iconic film characters of all time.
In March 2017, the producers of Godzilla transport audiences to the birthplace of one of the most powerful monster myths of all in KONG: SKULL ISLAND, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures.
When a scientific expedition to an uncharted island awakens titanic forces of nature, a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster and man. Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman and John C. Reilly star in a thrilling and original new adventure that reveals the untold story of how Kong became King.
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, his cinematic vision has reimagined Kong at the largest ever seen on screen with Kong being over one hundred feet tall. The character design brings to life a new Kong with the emotional solitude of being the last of his kind."
