Director- Peter Jackson
Cast- Adrien Brody, Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Andy Serkis, Jamie Bell
Release Date- December 14, 2005
Why it could be worth seeing-
I for one am not particularly interested in the story of King Kong, but this may spark my interest.
It is directed by the man who created the three greatest films of all time in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson.
And accompanying him is a hellacious cast featuring Oscar winner Adrien Brody, Oscar nominee Naomi Watts, and Jack Black along
with Andy Serkis. With Jackson at the helm this should at least be pretty good and entertaining. Should you see it? Yes, the
hype is too big not to.
Our projected View-
It will do well at the Box Office, but the 300mil mark is questionable, we are probably looking at
200-250mil. But hey you never know. This movie should be good and should be worth whatever you pay to get in. Its got all
of the tools, and it looks to be that those tools were put to good use. Its safe to say that you wont be dissapointed.
Projected Raiting- 8.5/10
Set in the 1930s, this is the story of a group of explorers and documentary filmmakers (led by Black)
who travel to the mysterious Skull Island (near Sumatra) to investigate legends of a giant gorilla named Kong. Once there,
they discover that King Kong is a real creature, living in a massive jungle where creatures from prehistoric times have been
protected and hidden for millions of years. As the explorers search for the great ape, their quest puts them up against both
Kong and his dinosaur enemies. Ultimately, it is the attention of a beautiful human woman (Watts) that soothes Kong long enough
for him to be subdued by the explorers and shipped back to New York, where his bleak future involves being put on display
in front of humans... but how long can even the mightiest shackles of man hold back an ape 25 feet tall? (movies.yahoo.com)
