Jordan Vogt-Roberts' Kong: Skull Island has stomped a defiant path through the box-office jungle and will roar past $400 million worldwide this weekend. One component of its chest-beating success is the superb visual effects work from Industrial Light & Magic, advancing the capabilities of digital wizardry in myriad ways.

From the gorgeous rendered backgrounds, fiery explosions and Toby Kebbell's mighty ape mo-cap performance to the monstrous menagerie of the Skull-Crawlers, Mire Squid, Mother Longlegs, Leafwing, Psychovulture, Sker Buffalo and Spore Mantis, ILM's prestigious crew of artists and technicians is unrivaled in the industry.

Take a peek at this illuminating BTS video from Wired's Design FX, hosted by Mike Seymour, spotlighting ILM's ground-shaking creations and be swept away by the cinematic magic.
