When the Vietnam War ends, Bill Randa and his Monarch organization partner Houston Brooks succeed in convincing Senator Willis to fund an expedition to the newly discovered Skull Island. He enlists the help of former Captain James Conrad, a group of soldiers led by Colonel Preston Packard, and award-winning journalist and photographer Mason Weaver to lead the expedition. The helicopters must fly through a storm upon arrival, and they soon drop bombs on the forest to chart the island’s seismology. Soon after, they are attacked by King Kong 2017, a massive gorilla who destroys the helicopters kills some of the crew, and scatters the rest across the island.
Conrad’s party encounters Hank Marlow, a World War II survivor who lives with a tribe of indigenous people. Kong, he explains, defends the island and its inhabitants from underground creatures and is not to be destroyed. Colonel Packard, on the other hand, is psychotic and seeks vengeance for the deaths of his friends.
