Kong is King of the Box Office

March 13, 2017

Kong: Skull Island topped the Box Office this past weekend, bringing in $61 Million domestically. I haven't seen it yet, but LOVE the King Kong movies (even the 1976 version with Jeff Bridges. I mean come on...The Dude vs. King Kong). I'll definitely be checking out Skull Island this week. Ron Olson saw it Saturday and said it's the movie of the summer so far. 

It leads me to this week's poll: What's your favorite King Kong movie?  (I'm leaving out some of the sillier installments. Looking at you Queen Kong). 

I'll go with the Peter Jackson version from 2005. Love that movie. 

Bonus: If you're a fan of Kong and headed to Universal Studios for Spring Break or this Summer,  "Skull Island: Reign of Kong" the ride opened just a few months ago to good reviews. I'm sure it's not a coincidence the movie & ride opening within a year of each other. Although if you're my age, you probably remember this gem of a ride from back in the 90's:
