Wellington can again go ape over movie stars on a red carpet when Peter Jackson's $200 million King Kong has its New Zealand premiere in the capital on December 14. United International Pictures, the film's New Zealand distributor, has confirmed Wellington will hold the premiere hours before King Kong is released around the world. Spokesman Jonathan Park said other details about the premiere, including where it would be held and guests, would be announced in coming weeks. Wellington City Council spokeswoman Trina Saffioti said the council knew about the premiere date and was working with the distributor "on a premiere event" for the city. [More]
