One of our most anticipated upcoming, big budget projects is ‘Skull Island,’ the Legendary Pictures film which will take place on the fabled island that King Kong once called home. For fans wondering if Kong himself will be making an appearance in this epic new movie, it seems like we have an answer: Legendary has re-titled ‘Skull Island’ and pushed the release date back from 2016 to 2017, but we have a feeling the wait will be worth it.

The reveal of Legendary Pictures' 'Skull Island' was one of the few genuine surprises of this year's Comic-Con. The studio already had a teaser for the film set on the infamous island inhabited by King Kong, dinosaurs and other terrifying monsters, but it was lacking just about everything else. Now, those gaps are starting to get filled: Jordan Vogt-Roberts has signed on to direct, Tom Hiddleston will star, and the film itself will hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
