Eighty years ago, the world saw for the first time the iconic, oversized resident of Skull Island. The 1933 film King Kong was a huge success, spawning sequels and remakes, televisions shows, comics, books and toys. Skull Island itself, though fictional, is said to lie somewhere close to Sumatra. It is home to a remarkable array of other creatures, most of them prehistoric and otherwise extinct. (According to National Geographic, the bizarre assortment of fauna living on the island is ecologically implausible).
You can find out more about Skull Island on the King Kong wiki (yes, it does exist) and you can even see pictures of the other island creatures.
Below, you can see the original 1933 trailer for the film.
