A team of scientists explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong, and must fight to escape a primal Eden.
When Hank Marlow (John C. Reilly) is first introduced, the back of his jacket says "Good for your health". This is an homage to the character Dr. Steve Brûlée on his television show, Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule (2010).

The opening scene starts on the beach, followed by a short foot chase through the woods. Suddenly they come to the edge of a cliff that is several hundred feet above a valley below. Since they started out on the beach at sea level, and during their short run through the woods they obviously did not climb a mountain, it is impossible for them to come to a valley lower than sea level that close to shore that is not filled with water (aka a lagoon).
The IMAX intro for the film features the statement "Kong is King", a trip through Skull Island vistas, and Kong's roar.
