Universal is negotiating with New York City for the use of Times Square for King Kong's December 5 premiere and party. The party of 8000 people - including New York's mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and 3000 fans - is expected to tie up Times Square in Manhattan and 38 screens in a pair of 42nd Street theatres at the height of the holiday shopping season. The festivities will include "a special moment" for the Empire State Building, where Kong meets his death. [More]
