You know the name, fame of King Kong...

Per Variety.com:

"By the time Universal releases Peter Jackson's vision of "King Kong" on Dec. 14, the first DVD edition of the original 1933 pic is expected to be on store shelves. Except it won't have a Universal logo on it. Warner Bros. has long been working on restoring the pic for DVD release. Although it hasn't announced when the DVD will go on sale, it is expected to be near Jackson's "Kong."



About friggin' time.

So, even if Jackson's version flops, something good will have come of it?

At last, a sensible marketing decision. I'm still mystified why the Errol Flynn pirate movies weren't released sometime around "Pirates of the Caribbean".

I think the industry generally thought that "Pirates of the Carribean" was going to be a huge flop. Its success caught them all off guard. Hence, no ancilary stuff prepared and ready to go.
