King Kong is Out on DVD Today!

Excited! but Dissapointed...

DVD Features:

Disc 1 >>>
* The Volkswagen Toureg & King Kong
I remember when we started working on this, and many peoples were upset due to throwing this extra work in right smack in crunch time to finish the main vfx work for the show, it was during the Rampage sequence
* Wish You Were Here
This is a damn trailer? lame, just lame.

Disc 2 >>>
* Special Introduction by Peter Jackson
cool.
* Post-Production Diaries: Director Peter Jackson takes you on an unforgettable journey revealing virtually every aspect of post-production with nearly three hours of exclusive behind the scenes footage.
Basically the only thing different from these diaries and the ones released when the film hit theatres is the additional 2 diaries for the world and Wellington premieres, and it's a bit easier to navigate to areas of the diaries. But I'm really dissapointed that there were not any additional vfx related diaries, covering comp and td especially, the dvd crew came through our dept a number of times, but I have yet to find anything on the dvd showing that.
* Kong's New York, 1933 - 1930s New York comes alive in this fascinating piece that explores vaudeville, the skyscraper boom, the construction of the Empire State building and more.
Interesting.
* Skull Island: A Natural History - Travel to treacherous Skull Island with Peter Jackson and his crew
I caught this on Sci-Fi last week and it's cool way of showing the story behind skull island, and it's inhabitants, a 'real' life documentary, but not for real.

So that's it??? No deleted scenes? No 4 hour director's cut? There were several vfx sequences cut from the film, I would have loved to see them make it into this 2 Disc special edition.
