To capture the primordial landscapes of the home of King Kong-Skull Island, Vogt-Roberts and his cast and crew had traveled far and wide over a period of approximately six months to film in places such as Hawaii, Australia, and especially: Vietnam.
According to director Vogt-Roberts, Vietnam provided the “perfect aesthetic” for the film.
“The look of Vietnam is gorgeous and otherworldly at the same time,” he said. “There’s such a raw, powerful and unspoiled beauty that general audiences hadn’t experienced on screen before. There is a ruggedness and a beauty to a place like Vietnam.”
Without all the Hollywood CGI, these landscapes will not be the same as in the movie, but you got to admit that they are still pretty epic.
The first filming location of Kong: Skull island’s crew is Quang Binh Province. The first location selected is Rat Cave (Tan Hoa hamlet).
