When going to King Kong’s home at a place called Skull Island there are certain things you’d expect.
You would think there would be some harsh landscapes, volcanos, and forbidding rivers. Locations that aren’t just at one place you’d normally see on Earth. If filmmakers were to try to put the people in digitally, unfortunately, it would feel like that, besides costing a ton more money. So what did the Director of ‘Kong: Skull Island’ decide to do? Put his actors at real locations all over the world.
The cast of the film went to remote locations in Hawaii, Queensland Australia, and even North Vietnam. Some of these places were far from the mainland, leaving the stars miles away from their trailers, cellphones, the internet, and any form of civilisation. In the above interview, go behind the scenes and into these locations and hear from Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, as they tell us more about the tough conditions, as well as why there was no complaining and moaning while there.
Kong: Skull Island is in theaters March 10, 2017.
