King Kong is a cinematic monster that first appeared in film in 1933.

“The character has become one of the world’s most famous movie icons, having inspired countless sequels, remakes, spin-offs, imitators, parodies, cartoons, books, comics, video games, theme park rides, and even a stage play. His role in the different narratives varies, ranging from a rampaging monster to a tragic antihero.” – Wikipedia

King Kong was found on Skull Island – a fictional island in the Indian Ocean.  (Heck, it is all fictional.) The prehistoric denizens of Skull Island predated Jurassic Park by about 60 years.

The film was remade in 1976 and 2005, adding to King Kong’s reputation as an enduring film icon.  The largest Kong yet (see what I mean?) is coming to the screen in March, 2017 in Kong: Skull Island.
