From Peter Jackson comes the Kong, starring Jack Black, Naomi Watts and Andy Serkis' motion-captured body as the great ape.
New York, 1930s. A group of filmmakers and explorers (led Black) travel to Skull Island to investigate legends of a giant, 25 foot tall, rilla named Kong. There they find the tales to be true: the jungle is a time capsule, protected and hidden for millions of years through it's isolation. Using a beautiful actress (Watts) as bait, they lure Kong and slap his ass with a one way ticket to a freak show back in the city. But we all know you can't keep a giant ape in a cage for long.
