Chris F. Moore's IMDb credits over the last couple of years could be of some help...

If I had my way, I'd want Weta to come back. Although, I'd also want this movie to be connected with Peter Jackson's King Kong, and that ain't happening, so...

But seriously, I'd love for Weta to have another crack at Kong/Skull Island without Peter Jackson and his whizzy camera moves/mediocre compositing. I re-watched his Kong the other day and there are some shots in that movie that are so glorious. Even after aging 10 years, there's some slow, lingering close-ups of Kong's face that are so photoreal. (And then there's the Raptor/Bronto chase, and not much needs to be said on that. :lol: )

I'd say that MPC or Framestore is a good chance. They want this Kong movie to connect to Legendary's Godzilla movies, so they might as well get MPC to do the lion's share and save trouble of handing over assets or starting over with models and such.

Looks promising. Love the giants spider shot!

Hopefully they keep Kong more secretive in the trailers and then let loose in the movie. I know that sometimes less is more, but you also get examples like the 2014 Godzilla where less was just less. :lol:

I know. I think we nearly got as much Godzilla in the trailers as in the movie. :-?

:eek: That is the closest to Obie's Kong yet! Prominent Ridge on Brow and clumped/matted fur. Love that look!

I don't usually say this, but I'm digging the classic/"back to basics" look of the design. It's identifiably Kong, yet easily distinguished from Peter Jackson's design. The brown and matted fur, the shorter/rounder head...very nice.

Agree 100%. Love where this is going design-wise. My interest in this project just went way up.

Dang, son! Looks even better now! Lots of new shots of Kong - makes me think that he's definitely not going to be a 2014 Godzilla scenario.

Also, LOVE the new creatures! Swamp buffalo? Wood monster? And even a two-legged lizard in reference to the 1933 Kong pit? My body-my body is ready.

Like I said before, I'm usually not one for rehashing ideas, but I really hope there's dinosaurs in this. I'd love to see a massive, 200 foot tall Tyrannosaurus in this.

I especially like that shot of Kong wading into the water. Really shows his scale effectively. I hope there are more like that. They made him huge for a reason and they should use that scale.

I would post all of the clips and featurettes of this soon to be released awesome-looking movie, but frankly, there's been so many released over the last week I've lost track of them all.

Stop showing us the entire movie before it's even out!

Man, I loved the shit out of this one, I couldn't find anything wrong with it, even though there probably are a few objective things not so right...but when I'm having a good time, I really don't give a shit.
