sounds like this will gear up to be another peter jackson smash hit blockbuster.
Blimey, i thought sore bums were a thing of the past after LotR!
I hope this doesn't come back to bite me of the a*se but this has got to be as close to a sure thing as you can get with a movie. Don't you just KNOW that this is going to be amazing? (Or is it just me.....)
Nope, I'm with you on that one.
I agree to Steve....Peter Jackson certainly has proved himself as a man who knows how to do things the right way
what remake has ever been "amazing"
this is bound to be another overblown CGI epic with no attempt at acting or plot.
Just watched a high quality (might have been HD) trailer. Was very impressive. Can't wait now!
I watched a few pieces of the xbox 360 king kong game, and got a bit of an insight into the film from that. The T-Rexes look incredible, and I can't wait to see king kong give them all a serious bashing!
War of the Worlds
Battlestar Galactica (TV)
I must admit the beautiful and beautifully made up Heroine in her designer 'poor' clothes reduced to stealing an apple hit a bum note with me.
Pure Hollywood schmalz.
However I was very impressed by the rest of the trailer, but lets not jinx it by talking it up just yet.
I could give a long list of films I drooled over in anticipation only to find another ho hum churn em out hyped up by the publicity machine.
The joker in this pack is Jackson knows how to make a movie and who seems to have integrity, at the moment at least.
Im not really interested Im thinking overdone effects with too much CGI.
CGI is meant to be a tool that if used right can be good but it is becoming the film in recent films.
Well if you know how to build a 100ft anamatronic monkey, id give Mr Jackson a ring
Didn't they already try that in the '76 remake? Shocking!
As for the 3hrs running time of Jackson's version...bring it on! I have enough confidence in him as a film-maker to produce the goods - the LOTR film's are 3hrs or more each and I personally never felt bored once in any of them.
Of course, in a year's time the extended edition (no doubt by 30 - 60 minutes) will be released, and Mr Jackson will then announce that this will be his definitive version rather than the theatrical release
Ahem. Just as he did with LOTR I believe
Take the first jurrassic park that was CGI used right they didnt use a t-rex for close up shots they used it in a clever way, that was made in 1993 and is far more believable then the monsters in movies 12 years later.
And your point is?
Have you seen the movie to comment on its use of CGI yet? I've based my opinion from the trailer, from the three Lord of the Rings movies - in which the CGI work was largely excellent, and the fact that Peter Jackson seems to be focused on getting his vision to the screen regardless of whether that means kicking back against the "money men".
In my opinion, PJ's last three films were all huge financial and critical successes, and kept the spirit of an "unfilmable novel" intact. The orginal King Kong is a classic in every sense but if there was any Director I'd like at the helm of a remake, currently, there's nobody more suitable than Peter Jackson.
Can someone explain exactly why/how king kong himself is so enormous?
Personally I'm dreading this film. It'll be total pants because the premise is total pants.
Monkey movies are rubbish. Just ask Tim Burton and Matt Le Blanc
A least you will save money, as you wont be watching it.
How can anyone crititise it when they have not seen it, the human said of the film might be excellent and touching.
Its like putting down LOTR, because it has hobbits, and other funny looking creatures. I cant wait for kong, with jacksons record, visually the film will be stunning, and with great depth.
Ok the dialogue might not be great, as with any line with money or kong in it will get sniggered at.
If you don't get it, then don't watch it! Simple really isn't it?
Pauley, you can now add the word "succinct" to your vocabulary!
Apple has now got the new trailer. Pretty good it looks too
This is inaccurate to the point of being libelous. Peter Jackson made it quite clear from the beginning that the initial releases of the three LOTR DVDs would be followed by extended editions. This gave people the choice as to whether they wanted to double-dip or not. He was totally honest and upfront in this regard. The extended editions also contain a great deal more than just elongated versions of the theatrical cuts.
Premise seems fine to me. Gorilla meets girl, Gorilla falls in love with girl, Gorilla gets girl, Gorilla loses girl. Seems like the age old story to me. What's there not to like?
and the word "banned"
I heard that Peter Jackson fired Howard Shore last month as he did not like the score he (Shore) had written.
James Newton Howard has been hired as a last minute replacement. Sounds strange, Shore did such a phenomenal job with the LOTR trilogy
I saw this news too, apparently they had creative differences so PJ just got rid of Shore. It'd be interesting to hear what Newton comes up with though as he's no slouch either!
