After the success of Godzilla, Studio Toho was looking to produce more big monster movies. A lot of ideas were tossed around before they were able to secure the rights to utilize King Kong in a behemoth battle against their monster. They tie their universes together by creating a Japanese pharmaceutical company that seeks to find a monster to gain notoriety and stumble across Kong on an island.

King Kong vs Godzilla is the one of the most fun King Kong movies.

At the same time, Godzilla breaks free from an iceberg and just so happens to be heading to Japan. Realizing that both monsters would destroy humanity in their country, the Japanese military orchestrates a way for the monsters to take each other out. The movie would go on to be financially successful and sow the seeds for big monster movies in Asia.
King Kong Escapes 1967

King Kong Escapes is one of those King Kong movies where he fights a robo-Kong.

In the 60s, Rankin/Bass and Toho branded this film as an official Kong story. It was kind of weird in a mash-up way. Combining elements from King Kong-inspired TV shows into the lore, the filmmakers behind King Kong vs. Godzilla created a tale where Kong takes Mechani-Kong, a popular villain from the serials. And yes Mechani-Kong is exactly what it sounds like a giant robot in the shape of Kong.
King Kong (1976)

Jessica Lange stars in this famous entry in the King Kong movies list.

In the 70s, producer Dino De Laurentiis and Paramount Pictures wanted to remake the 33 film but set it against the backdrop of the times and make it more era appropriate. Therefore the story ended up getting retooled to be about an oil company exec who discovers infrared images of an undiscovered island.
