MONARCH have embedded secret images and information on the new Kong: Skull Island poster we reported on yesterday! The secret images and messages can only be viewed when shining a blacklight over them and thanks to our Facebook friend Brian Luong, we now have 8 close-up photos of these hidden features, with more on the way!

First up we have a hidden message with coordinates labeled "Geological Disturbance - Abnormal Readings - Florafauna Harvest Site".

Next, we have another coordinate, labeled "Bone yard" with a message reading "Hypervore leaving". The bone yard is likely the location featured in the Kong: Skull Island trailer. The term Hypervore could reference the type of species Kong belongs to. However the next photo suggests a more official term for Kong. Perhaps Hypervores describe any superior creature which feeds off nuclear energy?

The next message indicates the supposed whereabouts of Kong himself. The messages shown here contain some fairly big reveals - Kong is considered an "Apex Primate" officially, with a message reading "Predator / Guardian / Roaming / Deity". The passage underneath this line is especially interesting - "Adolescent Superspecies". This essentially confirms that Kong is not fully grown in Skull Island (giving him ample time to grow enough to square up against Godzilla in their 2020 catch-up).

This section of the poster seems to indicate a storm system or unstable presence outside the border of Skull Island. The message warns of a storm "Beyond a supercell".

The following images are especially fascinating because they reveal actual Monsters (or at least their remains) - and they're HUGE. 

This one above seems to depict a massive Eel-like creature. The scales almost look like the back of Godzilla's neck! The next one below, shows the skull of a massive marine reptile. Its Skull is clearly visible, yet the rest of its body remains buried under Skull Island, or perhaps submerged in an underwater cave.

Here's a close-up and better shot of the skull:

Finally, this portion of the poster features MONARCH intel for Skull Island. It shows they have codenamed the project "Skull" and date the report April 7th, 1973. There is more to the message and we will be receiving more images of this section soon, so be sure to be sure to check back often!

So much has been revealed on this poster, with so much more yet to be discovered. As we receive new photos, this post will be updated accordingly. To re-cap though, we now know Kong is still in his relative infancy at the time of this report (April 1973). We also know Skull Island is home to many, massive creatures.

UPDATE: Another image of the poster has been uploaded, featuring a clearer view of the island! Check it out:

I had theorized that Kong wasn't fully grown here (in the 70s) when the trailer came out. It really does make sense, given his need to be larger come 2020.

Something Real

LegendMember5639 XPOct-08-2016 12:44 PM

How extremely compelling! I am left to wonder if the "Florafauna" descriptor indicates the possibility of Biollante making an appearance! :)


ContributorMember926 XPOct-08-2016 1:32 PM

I knew it! I knew Kong wasn't fully grown. This will give "Prince Kong" plenty of time to mature into a King, and earn the title before fighting the King of the Monsters.

Something Real, I agree with you. Florafauna sounds a lot like a term for Biollante. But I'm not sure how they would work her into the story.


InitiateMember339 XPOct-08-2016 1:33 PM

getting excited for this movie.


InitiateMember339 XPOct-08-2016 1:41 PM

as for florafauna...  think venus flytrap and pitcher plant... I would surmise that biollante like monster could totally work if done in a way that's believable .  this of coarse remains to be seen. 


InitiateMember339 XPOct-08-2016 1:42 PM

also.. that one image brings to mind.. rodan.

Also on the first picture with the skull of the marine animal it kind of looks like an ape foot print on the top/mid right side....or is it part of a face of something or someone.


MartianMember10358 XPOct-08-2016 5:30 PM

Nice Catch


NoobMember7 XPOct-09-2016 4:57 PM

I thought of Rodan too. hmmmm We'll see!

The skull looks like it could belong to the eel-like creature. The skull seems to be connected to the other creature. Maybe it's a creature similar to the Plesiosaur King Kong fought in the first film.
