King Kong

Peter Jackson's astonishing special effects extravaganza is light years from the plasticine models of the 1933 original, yet the heart of the story is not sacrificed. Kong is equal parts tear-jerker and jaw-dropper, telling the ultimate story of unrequited love while being attacked by giant dinosaurs! Filmed almost entirely in New Zealand with one of the largest budgets to date (over US$200 million), Jackson's big ape is indeed the Eighth Wonder of the World.
