When you’re Peter Jackson, a three-time Academy Award winner coming off one of the most successful film trilogies in history (Lord of the Rings), what can you possibly choose as your next project that won’t seem like a letdown?
King Kong, of course — the timeless tale of a gargantuan ape-monster captured in the wilds and brought to civilization, where he meets his tragic fate.
You can’t see Kong on the big screen until the film is released in theaters later this year. But you can see him on the small screen now.
King Kong hits theaters on December 14th (US).
