NEW YORK: Up to 3000 guests packed fashionable Pier 92 in Manhattan after the King Kong movie world premiere and partied hard until at least 4am today. It was believed to be the biggest movie premiere party New York has ever seen. The Empire State Building also hosted entertainment and parties to celebrate the premiere. Meanwhile one lucky New Yorker has won $US55 million from the King Kong Lottery. The gorilla thriller was drawn yesterday on the proclaimed King Kong Day in New York. The announcement of the lottery winner was made from the Empire State Building's observation deck last night. Five other people won $US1 million, and 10 won $US100,000 apiece in the first New York state lottery drawings ever linked to a movie. [More]
