Peter Jackson's "King Kong" will be released by Universal Pictures on Dec. 14 and the film, Jackson's follow-up to his Oscar-winning "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, is expected to have audiences in a tizzy this Holiday Season. The project stars Adrien Brody, Jack Black and Naomi Watts, as well as a computer generated monkey. [More]
