Charlotte's Film Club: King Kong

On this week of exploring the works of American actor Jack Black, Charlotte focuses today's Film Club on Peter Jackson's "King Kong" from 2005.

This remake of the 1933 Classic sees Black as a director from New York taking a crew of actors and sailors to the ominous Skull Island to film a new movie. Accompanying him are playwright Jack Driscoll (Adrien Brody) and actress Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts), who is soon whisked away by the monstrous ape, Kong, after they reach the island. The crew encounters dinosaurs and other creatures as they race to rescue Ann, while the actress forms a bond with her simian captor.

Andy Serkis stars as the titular ape thanks to motion capture, along with Jamie Bell, Colin Hanks and Kyle Chandler.
