King Kong, the film about an ape who terrorises New York City, made its European premiere in Berlin on Wednesday night. Kong stars Naomi Watts (21 Grams), Oscar-winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Jack Black (School of Rock). A press conference was held at the hotel "Adlon" in the afternoon with the leading cast members alongside the film's director, Peter Jackson. Jackson told reporters outside the premiere that he first tried to remake King Kong with a home movie camera when he was 12, but it "didn't work out". [More]
