Kong will be 100 feet tall in Kong: Skull Island... What?

So he's 4 times as big as the 2005 and the original 1933 versions and twice as big as the one in the 70s.

The movie is coming out on March 10th. There's a Godzilla vs. Kong film coming out in 2020 so I knew they'd do something to make it even, but he's still a lot smaller than Godzilla who was 350 feet in the 2014 version.



This isn't the largest version of Kong on the big screen, though. I'd say the one in Toho's 1962 King Kong vs. Godzilla was at least 140 feet tall. For comparison, Godzilla was 160 feet back then. I guess it makes sense that they had to make him bigger so he could fight Godzilla. It was also the first time either of them appeared in color

Kong also did have powers in this movie. He could get stronger by absorbing electricity and also give out electricity from his body. In their first confrontation, Kong gets scared and runs away when he realizes he can't keep up with Godzilla's atomic breath. Even in their final battle, Kong was getting his ass kicked and was almost killed until there was a thunderstorm. He absorbs the lightning and gains the upper hand. He also electrocuted Godzilla a bunch of times.


Kong ended up winning because of this, but Godzilla was nerfed quite a bit and hardly had any screen time. I guess it's because the Japanese audiences weren't familiar with King Kong, so they made the movie about him. They also spent quite some time introducing him.

I'm excited about the 2020 movie mainly because of the cast. It has Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, and Samuel L Jackson... I doubt if it'll be as good as the 2005 version though. Peter Jackson is a genius.

  • It makes sense that he'd have to be huge to take on Godzilla. It will be fun to see what craziness the writers come up with.

  • Is this a reboot?

    • Yeah it's a reboot of the King Kong series. But it's part of the same film series that the 2014 Godzilla is. Godzilla 2 is coming out in 2019 and Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020

    • I didn't expect them to make more of these for a while. I do know that a movie about Han Solo is suppose to come out next year and Indiana Jones 5 in 2019.

    • I knew about Han Solo but didn't know about another Indiana Jones. I'll have to look into that

  • Thanks for giving the movie away, I knew I shouldn't have come in here but I did and you gave it away

    • Yeah they're probably gonna team up eventually. Legendary also got the rights to the other monsters from the Godzilla series like Mothra, Ghidorah, and Rodan. Also, Monarch is confirmed to be in every movie (similar to how SHIELD has a major role in the MCU)

    • Damn it Marvel xD everything is a shared universe now. Even universal I think is making its own monster movie team up.

    • It's fiction. It's not supposed to make much sense.

      There have been creatures almost as big as the new Kong that have existed before though. And Godzilla actually has super strength even for his relative size. He also has enhanced durability and can heal instantly from any damage.

    • Godzilla hasn't always been so big though. It only happened after he absorbed all of that radiation and his body went through a lot of changes.

      And Kong has only been like 25 feet in most versions. They may or may not explain why he's so big in this version. Either way, it doesn't bother me much

    • To each their own.

  • Godzilla will roast Kong.

    • spidy used to take supermans lunch money, and batman has a bad gambling problem. spiderman would destroy baby kong birdboy and supergirl at once

  • Too big.

    I like my sci fi to be plausible, at least. No way could an island ecosystem support all those giant monsters.

  • The best King Kong story comes from that video game that came out in 2005. Anybody who played it knows what Im talking about. After playing the game, the movie from 2005 (upon which the game was based) was a huge disappointnent

    • I loved that game!! I used to stick to flame spears most of the times XD

      But I enjoyed the movie. Yeah it might have been disappointing if you played the game first, but I still think it's the best live action adaptation

    • I did play the game first, so I am orobably a bit subjective there. But still, the game is awesome, and I wish they made a full movie based on that game. Because the game contains much more action, monsters, beautiful landscapes, scary moments etc etc. To me personally it feels a lot more complete, as a story

  • Eh no surprise, they made Godzilla 300 feet in the last one. Apparently bigger monster = bigger box office take (even though I stopped going to theaters in the 1990's).

    After the monstrosity that was Batman vs Superman, I'll never see a movie with a "vs" in the title ever again.
