Kong: Skull Island is an adventure movie directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts that will transport you to an exotic island filled with mysterious and impressive creatures. This film also marks a new collaboration with Industrial Light & Magic. Our previous collaborations with this studio include Warcraft (2016), Tomorrowland (2015), and Unbroken (2014).
The Rodeo FX team delivered 80 shots for this film. Much of our work can be found in film’s opening sequence during a fight between two World War II pilots. Rodeo FX also created numerous matte paintings to represent multiple locations around the island and its jungle, including a sequence that involves pillars that can ultimately reveal secrets about Kong’s origins when properly aligned.
Kong: Skull Island is released by Warner Bros and lands in theatres today.
