If you’re at all familiar with Skull Island, you’re well aware that the home of cinema’s most famous giant ape is a terrible place where no one should ever go. Those seduced by the fictional locale’s siren song despite knowing better can now glimpse it on Google Maps, which has partnered with Legendary and Universal Pictures to provide a geography lesson for prospective moviegoers ahead of next week’s release of “Kong: Skull Island.”
Listed as an “archaeological site” west of Peru, Skull Island has already received nearly 7,000 reviews and boasts a cumulative 3.6-star rating. One user informs potential visitors that, though “the island itself is amazing and would in any other location be heaven on earth,” “the mood quickly changes one you have your first encounter with the King himself.”
Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly and John Goodman star in “Kong: Skull Island,” which was directed by “Kings of Summer” helmer Jordan Vogt-Roberts. The film will be released in theaters next Friday, March 10.
