From (via James thanks to kiko33): The most intriguing extra in the massive “King Kong”box set that Warners will be releasing on November 21 is a six-minute labor of love supervised by Peter Jackson, who – as all the world and portions of Pluto know by now, is the director of the “Kong” remake coming out on December 14. The short sequence, in what appears to be the pearly black-and-white of the early ‘30s, represents Jackson’s attempt to re-create the legendary “spider pit” scene that was cut from “Kong” by director Merian C. Cooper after early test screenings. [More]
