The 75th Anniversary Screening of KING KONG!
Sunday, March 2, 2008 at 1:00 pm
Attendant Events and Surprises are still to be announced, but celebrations and get-togethers are being planned for the entire weekend, culminating, of course, in a screening 75 years to the date of Kong's legendary NYC Premiere at Radio City Music Hall!
There are more announcements to come, but the screening itself is booked and official.
I need as early as possible an indication of how many people are seriously interested in attending. THIS IS NOT BINDING, give me maybes as well as yeses, including everyone you MIGHT bring, so I can block off enough tickets for our own use ASAP! More is better, unused tickets can always be released, so put in your bid NOW to make The List!
Remember, we are making this a Family Friendly Weekend, we want to meet you AND your long-suffering loved ones!

Meet Kong's Artist!
1/14/08, 10:43 pm EST - Xoanon
From the folks at WETA: We sit down with Senior Designer Gus Hunter, the man responsible for many of the stunning visuals in King Kong.
When asked what his favourite movie is, Senior Concept Artist Gus Hunter refers to the 1933 version of King Kong as one of them. “I’ve always loved movies with dinosaurs and scary monsters”, he says. “I remember watching it as a kid, and it just blew me away.” Little did he know that one day he would be working as the senior concept artist on Peter Jackson’s remake of the classic.
Gus joined the team during The Lord Of The Rings trilogy in 2000, in the Visual Effects Art Department, where he forged a relationship with Jackson and Weta. Gus has worked on concept art for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and was a Senior Concept Artist on King Kong from the very start (pre-production) to the very finish (post-production).
