The Academy Awards are still a few months away, but it's already time for Hollywood to start reminding the world of all the great work it did over the past year. That includes all of the amazing achievements in visual effects, as this breakdown of how FX Studio Hybride faked a giant ocean-going armada forKong: Skull Island.
King Kong started his reign in 1933, but it didn't last long. He was eventually overshadowed by Godzilla and a crowd of B-movie pretenders for decades, to the point where even Peter Jackson's attempt to revive him in 2005 couldn't help. But with Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has created an action-packed spectacle truly worthy of its giant, majestic star.
Kong: Skull Island is out March 10, the latest showcase for one of cinema's oldest and most reliable icons.
