Marketing for Kong: Skull Island has gone to new heights.  Now on Google Maps you can locate the island that Kong calls home.  This is not the first time that Google Maps has been used to market a movie, last year Google Maps was used to promote Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them.  That marketing strategy allowed you to locate four areas around New York City and look down on them in street view as if you were in the set of the movie.  Unfortunately there are no pictures of Skull Island or Kong standing tall looking around.  Out of a five star review currently Skull Island only has a three rating. 

If you want to make a difference, be sure to go in and give Skull Island a rating of your own. Tell them about the hospitality of the Skull Crawlers, or how great of a king Kong truly is of his island. Every review helps the owners of Skull Island in turning it into the number one destination of the South Pacific.

Kong Skull Island releases in the United States next week March 10, 2017.

The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures. This compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
