Footage from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong has been shown in the UK for the first time. A trailer and unfinished 14-minute action sequence from the highly anticipated movie was screened in London, watched by film critics and the BBC News website. The three-hour epic, said to have cost $207m (117m), will not be released in the US and UK until December. The clip was preceded by footage of director Jackson, who won the best director Oscar in 2004 for Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. [More]
