Kong: Skull Island shows the world "A peace, beautiful and hospitable Vietnam"

12/03/2017

The Hollywood blockbuster, Kong: Skull Island has just released all around the world. The impressive sceneries of famous destinations in the North of Vietnam are captured in the movie have attracted people from all over the world.
Why Vietnam?
Vogt-Roberts and his team made many trips around the world—places like Iceland, Hawaii, Australia, Thailand—in search of the perfect spot to set their scene. “Hawaii was great, but it’s very much tied to the aesthetic of 'Jurassic Park,'” he said. “I knew I wanted to stay away from that.”
It wasn’t until the director and his team arrived in Asia that he found what he was looking for. “We went to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam in one trip,” Vogt-Roberts said. “Cambodia was more of a research trip, and Vietnam was originally planned as a throw-away location simply because no one had really shot there before.”
The team made its way through each country, but when they finally landed in Vietnam, the landscapes and rawness of the country won Vogt-Roberts over: “It was something that I just felt didn’t exist in any other place that we traveled."
The decision to transport the entire cast and crew halfway around the world wasn’t without its obstacles. No other production of its size had ever been shot in Vietnam, and the studio went through years of negotiations with the government before getting approval to start filming. Upon arrival, they hit the ground running, and it wasn’t long before Vogt-Roberts was obsessed.
“I truly fell in love with the people, the culture, the food, and the landscapes,” he said. “It became my mission to put this country on screen and to let the world know how spectacular it is."
“That’s the reason why we shot there, because you’re trying to find something that is completely untouched and looks unlike anything you’ve seen before. And Vietnam is the answer to that,” said actress Brie Larson.
“You can see it in the film. People will have to go visit it. I cannot say enough nice things about Vietnam. It was my first trip there and it will certainly not be my last. Hanoi was absolutely incredible … and Ninh Binh was also beautiful. I tell everyone who wants to go there that (Hanoi) is such a great place to start because there’s so much to do and so much to see.”
‘Kong: Skull Island’ tells the story of a group of adventurers who set foot on an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean – one so breathtaking that people consider it unreal. Little did they know they just walked into the territory of the legendary King Kong.
The film, produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, is expected to hit cinemas in March 2017.
Scenes of the film were shot in Trang An, Van Long and Tam Coc in the northern province of Ninh Binh; the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Rao Nan River and Yen Phu Lake in the central province of Quang Binh; and Ha Long Bay in the northern coastal province of Quang Ninh.


Jordan Charles Vogt-Roberts, director of the latest Hollywood blockbuster “Kong: Skull Island” has been appointed as tourism ambassador of Vietnam in the 2017-2020 tenure.
At their meeting in Hanoi on March 9, all the 13 members of the council for appointment and dismissal of tourism ambassador established by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, agreed to choose Director Vogt-Roberts as the new tourism ambassador.
As planned, the director will receive the appointment decision at a ceremony on March 13. Vietnam’s tourism ambassador will have responsibilities to promote and introduce the tourism industry of Vietnam via media, press, arts, photography and other related activities.  Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is the second foreigner to be named tourism ambassador of Vietnam after New Zealand chef Bobby Chinn, who was the tourism ambassador for Vietnam in Europe.
He will work to promote Vietnam’s tourism through activities related to communication, art and photography, among others./.
