Explosive War Between Man And Monster Over Uncharted Territory

Coastweek -- From the producers of Godzilla comes the hugely anticipated Kong: Skull Island screening in 3 and 2 dimension at the NYALI CINEMAX, writes Nidaa Malik.

Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer).

In 1973, a secretive organization known as Monarch finds an island that is shrouded in mystery and identified as the origin for new species.

Thus the organization mounts an expedition to Skull Island, an uncharted territory in the Pacific.

Led by an explorer (John Goodman) and a lieutenant colonel (Samuel L. Jackson), the group recruit a disillusioned soldier (Tom Hiddleston) and a photojournalist (Brie Larson) to investigate the island’s peculiar seismic activity.

The resulting expedition to the island reveals that a giant monstrous ape named Kong is at the center of a battle for dominion over the island, against the apex predators, nicknamed the “Skull Crawlers”, responsible for wiping out his kind.

As the expedition crew makes plans to fight for survival against Kong and the other monsters on the island, some of them begin to see that Kong is worth saving.

Hence a mission of discovery becomes an explosive war between monster and man, awakening titanic forces of nature.

The action and adventure film is rated PG-16 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for brief strong language.
