    Accept no imitations. I'm struggling to avoid the use of the word 'official'... but there better be no aping of this thread. :)

    OK. Let's start off with a characteristic piece of understatement from Philippa Boyens:

    The Daily Mail swoons in possibly the first review online:

    Daily Mail Review continued...


    I'm a big Peter Jackson fan and am very keen to see this as soon as possible after release in less than a fortnight's time... a friend of mine with a passion for the original 1933 version has even got BAFTA preview invites to see it at the end of next week. :mad:

    Here's a picture to whet the appetite:

    All thread-hijacking aside, though, thise should be good.

    I'll definitely be checking it out as well. I think Jackson did an excellent job with LOTR, so I want to make sure that wasn't a fluke and that he's still got it. ;) Come on Peter, impress me again with your directing skills!

    I'll probably be hitting this one opening night. :cool:

    This movie is going to roxxorz my boxxorz, or something like that. I saw the preview, and when Kong sees the Trex is moving in on his lady, he doesn't like that one bit. That is one pissed off monkey!

    I can't wait. I love the original, and this is a re-make of the original. It should be sexy.

    This is a babysitter movie.

    Which, for me, is a compliment - it means that I'm willing to pay a babysitter to watch my kids so that I can go see a movie with my wife, effectively doubling the price of the movie.

    So it better be good. :D

    Everytime I watch the trailer I get pumped at the end when Kong jumps up and slaps the airplane wing off. I can't wait to see it. Definitley, babysitter material. I am intrigued by Jackson's decision to release the production materials DVD the day before launch. An interesting marketing tactic for the "true" fans.

    I was pumped months ago when I first heard that Peter was going to direct King Kong.

    I hope he doesn't make the two main male characters questionably gay again. That was weird.

    There probably won't be 2 main male characters in this movie at all, but if there's a sexually awkward scene between Kong and the girl, I'm going to walk out all confused again.

    Tie up your shoelaces, apparently there's a slightly mushy scene set in Central Park...



    ...which is interrupted by a barrage of artillery fire. :D

    Spoiler!

    Here's an approx 20mb .mov of the entire vine sequence which leads up to the scene you describe, it's about 2 mins or so. Unfortunately recorded via camera from a TV but it's good enough to get the idea — and it looks great!

    They don't like it when you incorrectly call them 'monkeys'

    Especially librarians..........

    If Kong is really smooth with the girl, men in general will have a difficult time living it down. I can imagine some unfortunate guy on the receiving end of this: "Please get your paws off of me and stop acting like a horny gorilla."

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!

    That looks like it's going to be a LOT of fun. Not even my type of movie, but from that clip alone (and a love of gorillas) I'll be going to see that....

    "It was beauty killed the beast." Provided this famous quote remains in tact, I'll look forward to seeing it.

    I never saw any version of King Kong...

    So when I saw the trailer for this in the theater, I was entrigued. But I don't know if I can 'handle' watching it in the theater; it seems sooo sad! I don't want to end up crying there. :eek: Gosh, I'm such a wuss.

    That was so awesome that I had to quit the window after a few seconds as I did not want to spoil myself silly. And here I am thinking that trailers show the best bits of a movie.

    I'm very excited for this movie. I remember being very excited when the first trailer came out. I'll be seeing it sometime soon. I'll try and go opening weekend, but I don't want to deal with lines, so who knows.

    I'm curious, is their Oscar buzz surrounding this movie? Or is it just supposed to be a fun movie?
