Forget the King of Pop-- here comes the King of Kongs
The website for Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong is reporting that its trailer will open in theaters with War of the Worlds on June 29. (It may appear online before that.) The video game based on Jackson's version will hit stores around the same time, and screen-shots can be found here.
Still, the best news for fans of the big ape is a rumor involving the long-awaited DVD of the 1933 classic. Horror film expert Bill Warren posted to a discussion board that the DVD print will include a sequence in a spider-pit that was cut 72 years ago because it was considered too frightening. The footage was considered lost forever, so if true, this is indeed Kong-sized news.
