There are fewer things as invigorating as when movie posters are done well. Kong: Skull Island is one of those posters.
Perhaps it’s because so many movie posters these days are just mailed in photoshop jobs by interns, complete with floating heads and familiar font. No inspiration. That’s what makes this one so amazing:
So yeah, that’s amazing. It’s almost enough to make me buy the poster before ever seeing the movie. Almost… I’d hate for the movie to suck then have to look at this cruel reminder hanging on my wall. The color scheme, the symmetrical layout, the looking specter of Kong in the distance, hidden but still visible… it is all just beautiful.
That being said, everything about Kong: Skull Island sure seems promising. The cast includes Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Sam Jackson, and John Goodman, and every bit of footage thus far has looked terrific.
Kong: Skull Island opens March 10.
