SFX  |  April 2017  


KONG SKULL ISLAND
The original 1933 fantasy epic is part fairytale, part cautionary fable and the quintessential giant monster movie, inspiring countless storytellers, some of whom have created their own versions of the Eighth Wonder of the World. Dino De Laurentiis put the great ape in a metaphor for corporate greed in 1976, while Peter Jackson brought him back to his Depression-era roots albeit with cutting-edge digital effects, in his 2005 reimagining. Now Kong finds himself at the centre of the shared universe Legendary Entertainment began with 2015’s Godzilla, building towards the creature-on-creature slam down of 2020’s Godzilla Vs Kong. But director Jordan Vogt-Roberts tells SFX he’s careful not to get ahead of himself with Kong: Skull Island, a film that gives audiences the biggest version of the beloved beast yet seen in an English-language movie.

Great magazine

Has given me lots of new shows to look forward to and also a great new book to start reading. Can't wait for the next issue Reviewed 20 March 2014

Great value and great magazine

I liked the virtual version so much I have now taken out a subscription to the print version. I was reading the this version on 7 inch nexus which might be a bit small. Can't argue with the price though. Good value and a good read. Reviewed 19 March 2014

Great reading

Been reading paper edition of SFX since issue 34 for about 12 years then stopped, thought I'd give it another look and try the digi-mag version and it's great! Enjoying getting back into it after being 'out of touch' with the media of film, books and comics info for so long. Plenty of editorial not just huge pics like some other mags - well worth the money.
