In 1933, when the original movie “King Kong” was first released in New York, it caused quite a sensation. It played to a record number of audiences and smashed all records. And, it did it in the middle of the Great Depression! “King Kong” is the timeless tale of a gargantuan ape-monster captured in the wilds and brought to civilization, where he meets his tragic fate. Expanding on the chapters of the tale that takes place in the mysterious and dangerous jungles of Skull Island, three-time Academy Award winning director Peter Jackson’s “King Kong” promises to be a unique and breathtaking creation. The movie stars Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Thomas Kretschmann, Colin Hanks, Andy Serkis, Jamie Bell and Adrien Brody and is due out on December 14, 2005. [More]
