The Art And Making Of Kong : Skull Island is a visuals laden hardcover volume that showcases the concept art work behind Legendary’s reboot of the classic monster film King Kong, with the occasional accompanying paragraph detailing the making of the film.
The book is fairly light on production stills and about 70-80% of the book is dedicated to the many concept art pieces including the creature/monsters designs ( plus many that did not make it into the final cut ), character designs for the Iwi villagers as well as concept “mood” boards for some of the film’s major action sequences. There is also a chapter covering art work created for some unused scenes.
I definitely enjoyed the film, a monster caper that really showcased the monsters instead of the human characters. This art book follows the same approach and is a great companion to the film. Recommended.
