“Set in 2050, Kong is still the strongest creature ever born with many human traits that make him the ultimate iconic hero. In ‘Kong,’ the future looks bright for San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island since its transformation into the most impressive natural history and marine preserve on the planet.
“But when the star attraction suddenly goes ape and Kong becomes public enemy No. 1, the villain that framed him is free to unleash an army of gigantic robotic dinosaurs on the unsuspecting world. Ironically, Kong is the only force formidable enough to stop these super-powered dinosaurs and the evil genius manipulating them.
“But Kong is now the world’s most hunted fugitive. Fortunately, there are three young humans who know the truth and are willing to risk their lives to help Kong evade capture, while he battles to save humankind.”
