About the Movie

The King Kong Extended Version is an action-packed movie experience with more than 13 minutes of additional footage not seen in the theatrical version, including the heart-stopping excitement of a charging Ceratops and the adrenaline rush of a Skull Island underwater creature's attack! Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) brings his sweeping cinematic vision and groundbreaking special effects to this spectacular film, a thrilling epic adventure about a legendary gorilla captured on a treacherous island and brought to civilization, where he faces the ultimate fight for survival. Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody star.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Our response to the ape's doom, once touched by authentic tragedy, is now marked by relief that this wretchedly excessive movie is finally over. – TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Good things do come in big packages. The trick for any filmmaker is to find the small movie within the big one, which is exactly what Peter Jackson does in King Kong. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Kong is a showy, state-of-the-art popcorn movie, faithful to the spirit of the 1933 original but generously adrenalized with the best effects money can buy. – David Ansen, Newsweek, May 29, 2011

Fresh: One hundred eighty-seven minutes of mesmerization, astonishment, thrills, chills, spills, kills and ills, Peter Jackson's big monkey picture show is certainly the best popular entertainment of the year. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Wish These Extra Scenes Were In The Original Version!

Great movie and usually stuff that's cut out is for a good reason not these scenes they're awesome! More dinos and creatures and more kong!

A true King Kong Fan

Loved what Peter Jackson did with this remake of this film! Just like Mr. Jackson, I too was taken by the the 33' version and I had my first crush on Fay Wray! I hope that iTunes puts the the original King Kong on here!! I highly recommend this movie, if you like action, adventure, one sexy leading lady oh and a giant ape!!
