The marketing push for Kong: Skull Island has been a bit slow lately but is expected to ramp up again as we enter the new year. To prepare for this, Empire Magazine have released a new piece of concept art from the film (pictured above) which features Kong running through a wall of flames. The concept art accompanies a preview spread for the film and an interview with director Jordan Vogt-Robert in this month's issue of the publication, here's an excerpt:

Expect conflagrations aplenty in this monster movie, set at the height of the Vietnam War when napalm was the weapon of choice. "The script I first read took place in 1917", says director Jordan Vogt-Robert. "But when I started talking to the Legendary [Entertainment] guys, I was thinking, 'What weird King Kong movie would I want to see?' So I pitched them the Vietnam War connection, literally thinking they were gonna laugh me out of the room. And to Legendary's credit, they said, 'Cool. Let's figure it out.' The aesthetics of that time mixed with King Kong makes for an incredible genre mash-up."

Additionally, a new set photo of Jordan Vogt-Robert perched atop a Triceratops skull prop from the film has also surfaced online - putting into perspective just how large some of the inhabitants of Skull Island really are:

I asked someone on Spacebattles to do some calculations, and apparently, according to the scaling, that Triceratops would've been about 22 meters long. Pretty big, since that's the same size as a mid-sized sauropod.
