King Kong: one expensive, long-assed movie


According to an NYT article, King Kong clocks in at over three hours and cost $207 million. If it were anyone but Peter Jackson, I’d be REALLY worried about an insanely expensive remake with such a long running time. As is, the Lord of the Rings trilogy is a masterpiece, if not the best set of epics to come down the pike this generation, so I’ll cut our Kiwi friend a little slack. But $200 million? For a movie about a giant monkey? Yow.
