Tom Hiddleston is currently posing for photos in both New York and London. Well, his wax figure, that is.
Both Madame Tussauds locations unveiled Kong: Skull Island, a new attraction tied to the Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures film. It includes a stunningly realistic wax replica of Hiddleston’s character Captain James Conrad, a colossal Mother Long-Legs spider, a jungle of bamboo and vines, and an 18-foot animatronic head of the titular creature. The Kong head took a team of 33 artists more than 72 days to build, and weighs more than 3,000 pounds.
“I hope when people come face-to-face with Kong himself, they get some sense of what it might be like,” said Hiddleston in a statement. “Probably, a better sense than I had, because when I made the film, Kong wasn’t there, we had to imagine him!”
Kong: Skull Island hits theaters March 10.
