New life is to be breathed into Peter Jackson's King Kong with Lower Hutt's refurbished NewDowse landing exclusive rights to the world's first exhibition about the $US207 million ($NZ290m) movie. The art gallery and museum will host The Imagining of King Kong The Exhibition, from June 23 till November 11. The museum, which reopened last month after a $6 million expansion, is developing the exhibition with Weta Workshop and Weta Digital. The Wellington studios, co-owned by Jackson, created the Oscar-winning visual effects for the film. [More]
