They should have called it Apocalypse Kong.

Why is there a need for this?

Jackson's redux still stands fine on it's own.

Because they need a movie to lead up to Godlzilla Vs. Kong.

Excerpt from an interview with the director:
The creatures are a big thing. Jurassic World obviously owns the dinosaur thing right now. If Kong is the God of this island, we wanted each of the creatures to feel like they’re individual gods of their own domain. Miyazaki and Princess Mononoke was actually a big reference in the way that the spirit creatures sort of have their own domains and fit within that. A big thing was trying to design creatures that felt realistic and could exist in an ecosystem that feels sort of wild and out there, and then also design things that simultaneously felt beautiful and horrifying at the same time. Where if you look at this giant spider or water buffalo, you stare at, a part of you says, ‘that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen’ and ‘oh my god, that’s going to kill me right now, I need to run for my life!
Got to admit, I did get kind of a Mononoke vibe from that last trailer.

A full price ticket with large popcorn and medium drink. It's a roller coaster ride that you won't be able to step from to go pee. You've been warned. :D

It's extremely well done. I'm going to go see it a few more times, I'm certain. Possibly in 3D once. Just to get the complete experience.
