Legendary Pictures has released one the best movie poster of this year, It’s an IMAX poster for Kong: Skull Island, and it’s done in the same theme as the Francis Ford Coppola‘s classic Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now.

According to CinemaBlend, one of the characters in Skull Island will tie the two monster movies together even though they take place 40 years apart.

Tom Hiddleston‘s character, Conrad, who is a tracker and former British Special Air Service soldier hired to assist a crew on an expedition to Skull Island towards the end of the Vietnam War. The team that he’s leading happens to be the same mysterious group that had known about Godzilla in that first movie. The group is known as the Monarch organization. Producer Alex Garcia explained to the site:

“It’s a landslide expedition, officially, but John Goodman, who plays the guy from Monarch, is sort of pulling the strings in the background and we come to realize obviously that they knew much more than they let on initially.”

Tom Hiddleston stars in Skull Island along with Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John C. Reilly, Toby Kebbell, Corey Hawkin,s and Jason Mitchell.

Kong: Skull Island hit theaters on March 10.
