In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to the mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow.
A giant, reptilian monster has surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop this monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
A film crew goes to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal giant gorilla who takes a shine to their female blonde star. Then he's captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Carl Denham needs to finish his movie and has the perfect location; Skull Island. But he still needs to find a leading lady. This 'soon-to-be-unfortunate' soul is Ann Darrow. No one knows what they will encounter on this island and why it is so mysterious, but once they reach it, they will soon find out. Living on this hidden island is a giant gorilla and this beast now has Ann is its grasps. Carl and Ann's new love, Jack Driscoll must travel through the jungle looking for Kong and Ann, whilst avoiding all sorts of creatures and beasts. But Carl has another plan in mind. Written by
The Venture crashing into several rocks especially on the port and starboard sides would have been severe enough for the ship to sink rather than stay afloat. See more »
That's a funny one. Isn't that funnier?

The end credits are set against an art deco backdrop rather than the traditional black screen. The backdrop is an exact replica, in Technicolor, of the same backdrop that was used for the opening credits in the 1933 version of "King Kong". See more »
I just arrived from the theater and still in shock with the new "King Kong" from Peter Jackson. It's a masterpiece. A jawbreaker. It's totally awesome! Never in my life I saw a blockbuster with so many layers of action, romance, adventure, love for the movie making and many others interpretations of a same theme. Jackson have a great sense as a director and never takes the easy way. The three hours passes by like a minute. Some of the scenes, specially in the third act, become instant classics of the movie history and will still forever in my mind. If I were Spielberg never do anything in this genre again. The moving pictures, the cinema as we know it, was just invented to Peter Jackson gave us this film. Ten!
