As many information on Internet, the movie Kong: Skull Island begins filming in Vietnam on February 2016. With cooperation from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the epic action adventure will be the largest motion picture ever filmed in Vietnam.

Amazing scenery and stunning view from the first sight
The director of the film, Mr Jordan Vogt-Roberts said: “When we got out of the car, we immediately saw a stunningly beautiful sight that we thought was not real. It was magical. Colours and shades of the mountain ranges will make audience say ‘wow’ when they are seen. We fell in love with this place”.
Besides, the famous British actor – Tom Hiddleston was very happy to be in Vietnam. He said he had a chance to visit Vietnam when he was 19 years-old. However, that holiday took place at the same time he was cast in his first role. “I think I missed the chance to see Vietnam due to acting, so now, thanks to acting, I will again be in Vietnam,” he said.
US Ambassador Ted Osius said the film will highlight Vietnam as a superb tourism destination and deepen ties between the two countries’ entertainment industries. “The American film industry is a global leader in artistic expression and can serve as a bridge between the arts and governments to work on issues we both care about: intellectual property rights, piracy and online content distribution,” he said.
