Yesterday, we announced our latest, long-anticipated issue of Birth.Movies.Death. magazine: a giant monsters issue celebrating Kong: Skull Island, as well as Colossal and a whole boatload of other big beasts. Here's a little scoop on that gargantuan magnificence:
In celebration of KONG: SKULL ISLAND, we’ve got a gorgeous, full-color commemorative issue celebrating all things giant monster! In addition to tons of in-depth editorial on King Kong himself, we’re diving into Nacho Vigalondo’s new, surprisingly intimate kaiju film COLOSSAL, as well as such other big (and we mean BIG) bads as Godzilla, King Ghidorah, The Host, a bevy of 50-Foot Women, the kaiju and mechs of PACIFIC RIM and much, much, much more. We’re talking a skyscraper-sized mag here, people.
Also featured in this issue:
* A huge, revealing interview with KONG: SKULL ISLAND director Jordan Vogt-Roberts
* A terrifically insightful conversation with COLOSSAL director Nacho Vigalondo
* Examinations of British monster movies (THE GIANT BEHEMOTH! THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS! QUEEN KONG!) and American monster movies (THEM! IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA! TREMORS! ANACONDA!)
* Love letters to SON OF KONG and KING KONG ‘76
* A deep dive into the history of Merian C. Cooper, the father of King Kong
* Impassioned tributes to Willis H. O’Brien’s ground-shaking special effects and Max Steiner’s all-time score in the original KING KONG
* A brilliant discussion of the monsters within in COLOSSAL
and even MORE. Plus we’ve got this stunning KONG: SKULL ISLAND cover by Mondo artist Jay Shaw, and a spread of Mondo’s most stirring artistic nods to the big guy over the years.
