Today, Madame Tussauds London signed for a monstrous delivery that is set to be a roaring success at the iconic attraction, with the arrival of a larger than life Kong: Skull Island experience. In partnership with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, Madame Tussauds London and Madame Tussauds New York will bring the experience to life with an eighteen-foot, multi-sensory animatronic head of the gigantic ape that will wow and terrify visitors in equal measure.
Guests can expect to embark on an adventure deep into the tropical environment of the infamous Skull Island, where they will be challenged to evade the traps of colossal petrifying spiders and uncover artifacts from the film. As they journey through the secluded bamboo jungle, they will be joined by a new wax figure of Captain James Conrad, played by British actor Tom Hiddleston in the upcoming film, before coming face to face with the enormous breathing, blinking, snarling and roaring mystical monster himself.
The enormous animatronic Kong head, made from 64 square meters of specialist faux hair, took 72 days to build and create by 33 team members. Each movement of the head uses state of the art pneumatic controls which was designed specifically for Kong. The system precisely controls the pressure and flow of air to recreate life like facial movements, grunts, snorts and roars made by the ferocious beast. Delivered via a 20ft crate on a flat-bed lorry in the early hours of this morning, the experience will be unveiled in Madame Tussauds London in March 2017 in conjunction with the global launch of Kong: Skull Island.
Edward Fuller, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “Creating such a large and life like animatronic figure is a first for the attraction and we cannot wait to share it with our visitors. The experience will transport guests who dare enter to the islands of the South Pacific and give them a chance to embark on their own mission of discovery. Alongside our first wax figure of Tom Hiddleston, as Captain James Conrad, they’ll be able to feel the roar of the king of the jungle.”
Warner Bros Japan, on their Twitter page, has posted bios on a few of the creatures of Skull Island. The info is basic but does explain a few things (warning possible minor spoilers). The descriptions are translated from Japanese so they may be off slightly.

About Kong: Skull Island
The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures. This compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World), Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Avengers: Age of Ultron), John Goodman (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Argo), Oscar winner Brie Larson (Room, Trainwreck), Jing Tian (Police Story: Lockdown), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), John Ortiz (Steve Jobs), Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton), Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton), Thomas Mann (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), with Terry Notary (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Oscar nominee John C. Reilly (Chicago, Guardians of the Galaxy).
Vogt-Roberts directed the film from a screenplay by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly, story by John Gatins. Kong: Skull Island is produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia, with Eric McLeod and Edward Cheng serving as executive producers.
The creative behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Larry Fong (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), production designer Stefan Dechant (supervising art director True Grit, Avatar), Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy) costume designer Mary Vogt (the Men in Black films) and composer Henry Jackman (Captain America: Civil War). The team also included Oscar-winning makeup supervisor Bill Corso (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and supervising stunt coordinator George Cottle (Interstellar, The Dark Knight Rises). The legendary Kong was brought to life at a whole new scale by Industrial Light & Magic, with two-time Oscar winner Stephen Rosenbaum (Avatar, Forrest Gump) serving as visual effects supervisor.
To fully immerse audiences in the mysterious Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and his cast and filmmaking team filmed across three continents over six months, capturing its primordial landscapes on Oahu, Hawaii—where filming commenced—on Australia’s Gold Coast, and finally in Vietnam, where filming took place across multiple locations, some of which have never before been seen on film.
Warner Bros. Pictures/Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures present a Legendary Pictures Production, a Jordan Vogt-Roberts Film, Kong: Skull Island. The film will be released worldwide in 2D, 3D in select theatres, and IMAX beginning March 10.
Cinema’s iconic ape King Kong will join the LEGO Batman Movie and apparently receive a voice courtesy of Seth Green. It was revealed in an interview at Flickering Myth with Chris McKay that Kong would be featured in the film, and we now know he'll be voiced by Green (via Entertainment Weekly). While no images of a LEGO Kong from the film have surface fan creations have, but we assume the film version will be a tad better. Who knows maybe there will be a Kong LEGO set, well we can dream. The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters Feb. 10.
