With the release date fast approaching, the studio behind “Kong: Skull Island” has revealed an awesome Japanese poster. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts took to his Twitter page to give his followers a look at the poster after it was officially unveiled in Japan stating, “Can we talk about how great our Japanese Kaiju poster is?”
Created by legendary Japanese artist Yuji Kaida, Kong and the island’s other monsters take center stage. With rich colors and exuberant renditions of key elements from the film, this poster creates a sense of kinetic energy around the mega monsters of the movie by showcasing some of the heavy hitters shown in several of the trailers and tv spots. However, it is the subtlety of the human characters washed into the background that exudes a dark sense of doom for human beings in the Vietnam War-era film. Kaida is no stranger to creating work for movie monsters. He has created several pieces surrounding Japan’s own “Godzilla” as well as “Gundam.”

If the poster does nothing else, it should gear fans up for the inevitable re-match of King Kong and Godzilla that Legendary Pictures is currently developing. After all, who wouldn’t love to see another Kaiju inspired poster, this time sporting the two titans of monsters squaring off?
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, “Kong: Skull Island” also stars Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly. Released by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film opens in theaters on March 10.
