King Kong first appeared on the screen in 1933, when it was a movie about a monster that Merian C. Cooper produced with Ernest B. Schoedsack. This film featured miniatures, stop motion, and rear projection, which was a pioneer in special effects technology. The classic horror film was named one of the greatest and earned $51 million in box office (adjusted to inflation).
The 1933 film spawned three remakes, one in 1976, 2005, and of course the newest adaptation ‘Kong: Skull Island’ that was recently released in cinemas (10th March 2017) starting Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson and Brie Larson.
The 2005 remake directed by Peter Jackson and had a (at the time) record-breaking budget of $207 million and overall was a domestic and worldwide success and actually won 3 Oscars along with another 39 awards.
Jack Black plays the role of Carl Denham, an ambitious filmmaker who is set in 1933 during Great Depression. He hires a crew and along with his cast, they journey across perilous waters to the dreaded and mysterious Skull Island. Where they will discover many dangers, including a tribe of Kong worshiping cannibals, deadly predators, huge oversized man-eating insects and witnessing an epic fight between Dinosaurs and a massive Ape.
Currently, the 2005 film is unfortunately not available to stream anywhere on Netflix at this moment, but you are able to rent the film from either Google Play or the Movies section of YouTube, so that would probably be your best bet for online streaming.
The title is also not available to rent on Netflix DVD, but if you keep up to date with our DVD Releases you might be able to find it in the near future.
