The Bock’s Office: ‘Kong’ keeps going strong as reigning king of Hollywood

Besides the time period in which it’s set, “Kong: Skull Island” bears a great deal in common with movies like “Apocalypse Now.” But, though what the quarry characters are after is about the same build as the man who played Walter Kurtz, he’s much less demanding, at least in terms of salary.
