Answer to Trivia

The film is set in 1973 at the tail end of the Vietnam War, so it's not surprising that a Vietnam War film would have a large influence on Kong: Skull Island. That film is Apocalypse Now and you only have to look as far as the below IMAX poster for Kong: Skull Island to see its influence.

Apocalypse Now is based on Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and the book's influence can be found in Kong: Skull Island characters Conrad and Marlowe, the lead character from Heart of Darkness. Kong: Skull Island is part of a new Monster Universe of films that will combine two of its biggest baddies in the upcoming film Godzilla vs. Kong.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves, first let's enjoy Kong: Skull Island which is new this week on 4k UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
