Peter Jackson has finally revealed the real star of King Kong and he is not only big, he has a snaggletooth and is at least 120 years old. The face of Kong who is 7.6 metres (25ft) tall was one of several scenes from Jackson's $200 million movie unveiled in its first trailer yesterday. Jackson's backers, Universal Pictures, coordinated a marketing blitz by releasing the trailer on television, cinema screens and the internet, as the director met the studio's top executives in Wellington.
