With vaudeville in its death throes, actress Ann Darrow finds herself out of a job in Depression-era New York. But her luck changes when she meets Carl Denham -- entrepreneur, raconteur, adventurer, and filmmaker -- a man struggling to make a name for himself in the entertainment industry. Bold, ebullient, and charismatic, Denham leads Ann, along with famed playwright Jack Driscoll and the crew of the tramp steamer Venture, on a faraway filmmaking expedition, to the Indian Ocean and the legendary, primordial jungles of Skull Island. It is here that Denham hopes to capture on film the waning undiscovered wonders of the world -- wonders available to anyone for the price of admission. What they all find instead are living nightmares and deadly perils in a hostile place that time forgot...where a director is willing to risk everything for the sake of his film...where a writer will test his physical courage and his heart...and where a beautiful actress will forge an unshakable bond with the most fantastic creature ever to walk the earth....
