Kong Is King Updated As Of 11/24/2004
Backers of Peter Jackson's $200 million King Kong have
dismissed a British newspaper report that the world premiere
will be held in New York next year.
The Daily Mail newspaper this week reported that "the premiere
will be in New York, just before it goes into thousands of
cinemas around the world".
The report said that "there had been talk" of it being shown
first in Wellington "but the lure of Manhattan, home of the
Empire State Building" which features in the film "was just too
A spokeswoman for King Kong in Wellington said no decision had
been made on where the world premiere would be held.
The newspaper "is just speculating", she said.
King Kong will be released on December 14 next year.
This Is Old But May
Shed Some Light On The DVD Issue
OK, my partner in crime,
Jay, has searched the web relentlessly and has come up with a
DVD tid bit from a while ago.
ChrisSierra] First off, thanks for
chatting with us tonight. I apologize if this has already been
covered as I came in a little late, but can you tell us
anything about the King Kong release? PS- can't wait for those
animated Batman DVDs! Thanks!
[warnerbros] You're welcome. We're glad to be here. We really
don't want to go into details on KONG except to say it will be
a 2 disc SE, and we are currently doing a film element
restoration on it from a gorgeous nitrate element located
recently in Europe. Well worth waiting for. Kong will now fall
from the Empire State Building without gaps!

If other Kong fan sites are cooperative
in sharing their enthusiasm for the genre ... there are not a
lot of Kong sites, but the ones I've found are very different
from one another. I was curious as to whether they share
freely or are very protective of their content. I like the
connection between you & the Kong is King site ... great work,
keep it up...

the most revealing updates so far.See the whole thing at

The Most Awesome Thriller Of All Time!
Out-leaping the maddest imaginings! Out-thrilling the
Master showman Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) has fallen
on hard times due to the depression, and mounts an
expedition to the mysterious Skull Island to find
another showpiece. He takes along adventurer Jack
Driscoll (Bruce Cabot) and the down-on-her-luck gorgeous
blonde Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) with him to spice up the
show. Arriving on the island, they discover it is home
to gigantic beasts of all shapes and sizes ruled by
Kong, a 30 foot tall gorilla. The natives kidnap Ann as
a sacrifice for Kong, and the other crewmembers head
into the dangerous island interior to rescue her. Beauty
and The Beast is much too big of a story for Denham to
ignore so Kong is taken to New York City where is
presented as the “Eight Wonder Of The World”. Kong
escapes his chains and takes Darrow to the top of the
Empire States Building where one of the best early
special effects battle takes place high above the New
York sky line. In the end beauty kills the Beast. Also
known as Beast, The (1933), Eighth Wonder of the World,
The (1933), Eighth Wonder, The (1933), King Ape (1933)
and Kong (1933).

Kong 33 DVD: No New
Scoured the internet in
search of Kong 33 DVD release news and the only thing I
could find is this old post from
This hasn't been announced, but it comes directly from
authorized studio sources, so you can consider it official.
We've been told by Warner that their upcoming special edition
will NOT be released in 2003. The studio very much wanted to
make it happen this year, given that it's the film's 70th
anniversary, but their greater concern is to make sure that the
film is presented in the highest possible quality on DVD.
Apparently, the process of fully restoring and remastering the
film has been very time consuming and the studio wants to make
sure it's done properly. If all goes well, look for
Reilly: A Talent To be Reckoned With.
