King Kong Deluxe Extended Edition Out Today!

A year in the making... take in some air...and the King Kong 3 Disc Deluxe Extended Edition is out today, whew. Everything I was hoping they would get in there is in there. They swept up the shots off the cutting room floor and completed them for our viewing pleasure. Kong's Capture sequence was a lot longer and had some great shots of Kong doing damage to the native architecture, all this and a ton more seems to be here. They had dvd crews coming through the comp department a number of times, and I was always disappointed that they never really put out a TD and Compositing video diary of the stuff we were cranking out... so again, I'm hoping all those goods will be in this edition.

So if you want the Limited Edition Weta sculpture of Kong climbing the Empire State Building you'll need to take in another breath for the... King Kong Deluxe Extended Limited Edition DVD Gift Set, ohhhBboy.
