King Kong Model Catches Fire At Kong: Skull Island Premiere In Vietnam

The Vietnamese premiere of Kong: Skull Island has been disrupted by a fire. A five-meter-tall model of King Kong used to promote the movie burst into flames before the film started–check out the footage below:

As reported by Sky News, the premiere was taking place in Ho Chi Minh City, the largest city in Vietnam. Fire from a nearby volcano prop hit the huge Kong model outside the theater, causing it to immediately ignite. The site reports that within minutes the entire stage where Kong had been placed was engulfed in flame.

Thankfully no injuries were sustained. Fire fighters were quick to attend to the scene, and the premiere continued as planned.

King: Skull Island opens in the US today, March 10. Box office predictions suggest that the movie will have a $45 million-$50 million weekend debut, although it will face competition from Logan, which opened last weekend to huge success.

Reviews have been strong for the monster movie–check out a roundup here, and read GameSpot’s take on the film.

Skull Island is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, and John C. Reilly.
