Generally we do not talk much about movie poster design here at DesignBump. However perhaps we really should do this more. Since this brand new poster for the upcoming adventure/monster reboot of Kong Skull Island is a real beauty of a monster poster.
In fact, so far Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary Films have done some stunning artwork with the promotional campaign for “Kong: Skull Island”. The poster designs for this monster movie have demonstrated that even with big film releases like Kong; experimental and perhaps unconventional poster designs still have a creative place. Some might say they also have an edge.

About Kong Skull Island
Even if you only mildly enjoy cool movie posters such as the Japanese poster art for King Kong Skull Island chances are you will enjoy the big screen reboot in the spring. The last King Kong movie was a more traditional Kong remake from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson way back in 2005. That also was a decent effort. So Kong Skull Island will really have to top that earlier Peter Jackson movie in the overall thrills and adventure stakes.
In the new reboot called Kong Skull Island, scientists, soldiers and adventurers unite together in order to explore a mythical, uncharted island far out in the Pacific Ocean. Cut off from everything they know, they venture into the deadly jungle domain of the mighty Kong. Thus igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature.
As their mission of discovery soon becomes a campaign of desperate survival; only the bravest of the brave will survive their time on Skull Island. For more details on this spectacular looking King Kong reboot visit the official production web site.
