KING KONG smashes through Russia! Sweet poster art here! Plus James Newton Howard on the new diary!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some absolutely gorgeous foreign posters for KING KONG. Why is it that 99 times out of a 100 US posters look lame compared to foreign (be they UK quads, Italian, Polish, German and, in this case, Russian)? Oh well, at least we got that sweet Kong Holding Ann Empire cover as a banner and the great UK quad art as giant theater standees.

This movie can not get here fast enough. I especially love the second poster below. Fans of KING KONG know what just happened before and what is about to happen after that still shot. I'm finding that of the stills released, the ones I love the most aren't action Kong, but the ones that really show his character, his soul. That's what I love about that new trailer so much. In that trailer he ceased to be a big CGI gorilla and became KING KONG. You can see a soul in that creature and if that was missing then Peter Jackson's movie would be in a major nose dive with no chance of the engines kicking back in.

Thanks to the folks at Filmz.ru for sharing these beauties! eBay here I come!!! When you're through checking out the below images, CLICK HERE TO GO SEE JAMES NEWTON HOWARD score the film and hear some of his score!!

    The 1933 version is classic in every way and lots of fun. The 1976 version is great nostalgia camp and has a hottie Jessica Lange. This one has CG Kong...I rest my case. What's exciting about this? Why is Harry pimping it like his newborn troll?

    by freak2thec0re

    right after he made the Lord of the Rings trilogy? I mean, what exactly does he have to do to get you to have the tiniest bit of confidence that he might be able to make his next film good. LOTR could have just as easily been a cgi spectacle, and I think he handled it pretty well. If this movie indeed sucks, then go ahead and post serious doubts on whether his next film will be good, but cmon, I'd think he should have earned a little confidence with his last effort

    "the only thing going for this KONG is the effects"... er right. Were the lord of the rings films just showcases for effects? why would you say that? Clearly with those films Jackson managed to generate a lot of emotion and drama, and bring something worthwhile to a well known story...so why do you think this film will have none of that? Are you just relentlesly negative about everything? Surely, given the quality of Return of the king, theres a CHANCE that this film might be worth watching? People like you depress me. And if you do reply, try to do it without using your best playground put-downs like you did with the poster above...

    by indiephantom

    Certainly, you may be right about there being a chance it's all right. I'll probably cave in and download it for shits and giggles...but I happen to remember movies like "Jurrasic Park"...that film had a well-known cast and respected director and still it was only concerned with wowing us with the effects. The idea that this film is going to stand on its own and contain 'emotion' and 'drama' is funny to me. But then again, I felt the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy was pretty to look at, but pretty much empty on every other level (certainly Ian McKellen brought emotion and prestige to Gandalf). I'm not saying this will be the worst film of the year, but I'm pretty damn sure it will be the worst KONG. Has there every been a film at this site that was hyped TO THE MAX for months that didn't end up being abso-crap? That's my point. If raging fanboys can drone on endlessly about how fucking amazing this film is going to be, I can represent balance by denouncing it and its shameless corporate existence. Since you don't want me to insult you, then I'll just call Harry an assbag again for emerging from his kiddie-porn infested dungeon to trump Jackson's masturbatory swill.

    Sort of weird that they didn't mention they had switched composers.

  • Will the score be up to the standards of the rest of the movie I wonder. I love some of JNH's work, but King Kong needs an absolutely classic score, with very recognizable themes, and I don't know if that can be delivered in such a small time. Then again, he did it with Waterworld, where the score was easily the best thing about the movie. I just hope they're using the classic Steiner score as an inspiration. Iconic imagery should be accompanied by iconic music. Let's hope JNH can deliver.

We've all seen that Woody Allen movie with the quote from Balzac, said after the neurotic one gets down with a lady, "There goes another novel", though I doubt so many of us have actually read the book. As far as the translation comment goes, it was a fucking joke bruv. I used to live in Georgia so you don't think I'd pick up on the fact that they use a different script? I mean, people realised that your spiel on World War I being a planned conspiracy by the Illuminati was just you funnin' them, without having to call you a dipshit.

    Learn from your mistakes! Do not fall victim to the hype and slick poster images. If you line up with the rest of the chumps and pay to see this movie what will you get? Super slick CGI visuals (big deal - gimme old school FX anyday) a lame script that only hints at what a great adventure the original is and some new irritating characters. In other words, a major let-down. Just buy the Kong toys and have your own adventures.

    Does onyone else agree that Harry should just go ahead and post his review for Kong without even seeing the film? There's is absolutely 0% chance that he's not gonna like it. He loves Peter Jackson to death and, hell, the wall paper on his site is from the 30's King Kong. So I think Harry should just go ahead and post his review for Jackson's King Kong without even seeing it. It's gonna be a love letter anyway, regardless if the film smells worse than Kong's butthole. So I say, rather than make us wait you should go ahead and just lay it on us. That's my two cents anyway.

    Hey everyone, look at me!

    by Lefty Lefterson

    Oh my god, I am soooooooo rad because I say this movie is going to suck while everyone else is enthusiastic about it. My coolness is like, totally overwhelming, you don't even know. Because like, this movie is going to suck and stuff. Oh man, the LotRs movies were like, TOTAL BOMBS, man. I am cool! All you yahoos WISH you could be like, as cool as I am!

    Hey everyone, look at Lefty and Ringbearer

    by TheGinger Twit

    Oh my god, that was so funny. Both these men made me laugh. They both know who are cool and uncool, and it's vise versa with each of them. LotR was a total bomb. but it made shitloads of money.

    What is that 11 11 11 11 shit all about. is it a score system because I saw it once change to 11 12 11 11. ? . And WHAT THE HELL is that 'make out with King kong' stuff on the middle, top right hand corner of this page? seriously? Is this a porn link? I'm a fraid of what I might see.

    Which movie had Harry crying in the shitter?

    by Citizen Arcane

    I forgot which movie it was but he admitted he had to go to the theater restroom and cry afterwards. If I come out of Kong and I see a fat man, any fat man crying like a bitch, that will make my moviegoing experience complete.

    And fuck Ringbearer9 too.

    by Samuel Steamer

    People who don't want to anticipate movies should go somewhere else while thier sperm is reloading in between wanks. Why do people have to be negative just for the sake of it. I'm only attacking you because i am sick of jerks like you who have nothing constructive to say besides "this is going to suck", "it'll never beat Star Wars" or "LOTH's sucked, this will too", etc. Explain yourself or start your very own retarded hate site. This is supposed to be a site for people who like movies. If you are going to trash something, offer some constuctive elements to your argument. A simple "I hated it" does not count.

    I'm trying real hard to buy into the hype of this movie...

    by TheSumOfGod

    ...But I can't. King Kong is of absolutely no interest to me. I don't hate it, it's just... meh. Is it true that Peter Jackson is gonna make THOR after this? Now THAT I would show interest for.

    GodDAMN ringbearer, does every movie you like FUCKING SUCK?!?

    by mortsleam

    Anyone that likes any Bay movie automatically loses the priveledge of having their opinion heard. Bye now. *** Uhm, actually, yeah, a PJ Thor sounds like a good idea, and would probably be a better fit for his sensibilties than LOTR was, because as good as his adaption was, the disconnect bewteen historical epic fantasy and schlocky idie horror was evident. What did I just say? Yeah, that's right, I love the LOTR movies, but I can admit they aren't perfect, but Anne Rice's Jesus Fucking Christ, I don't go on every single fucking talkback and complain about it. Enough already.

    samuel steamer has got it %100 correct.

    by slappy jones

    i thought that people here liked movies too but it seems that they hate everything.....i know they think they are awesome for coming to every KONG article and abusing it like it makes them cool (unfortunately they seem to forget that they are posting on aint it cool news...we have to be the most uncool people around!!)...but you know what - they are obviously incredibly sad and lonely people with no real lives. i mean why spend so much time and energy into coming here and saying the same tired shit over and over again about a film you seem to have no interest in. be honest now....admit it..you have nothing better to do do you? why come here and write "King Kong is of absolutely no interest to me".I mean if that is the case why did you click on the article? it is weird to me because if i see an article about something i am not interested in i don't fucking read it because I AM NOT INTERESTED IN IT. so why did you come here..there are two reasons possibly 1. you thought by writing that it made you better than the people who are looking forward to it to try and bum them out a bit or 2. because you a liar and i will see you opening night. surely you guys have better things to do than waste your time coming to every kong article to abuse it? surely......

    slappy jones i commend you

    by puter1803

    hes right. a perfect example is a new article today showing a new image from ghost rider. i was barely interested enough to click the link and see the image, then did my "meh" (without posting), and let it be, and now ill probably never go back to that article again. why? because im not looking forward to the movie, i have no interest in the movie, so it would be a huge waste of my time to continue to go back to that article and spread hate about "this is gonna suck" and "wha wha wha" crying like a sissy cause i think the cg isnt good enough and blah blah blah. i.. dont.. have.. interest in it, like 50% of you dont have interest in kong, so why dont you do as i do, and not bother posting about it! whats the fun in a site like aicn when you cant pick and choose which films you are anticipating and which you arent. anticipating movies gives me something to look forward to, i like the excitement it gives me, and its obvious that harry shares my anticipation (along with half of u in the talkback) about king kong. and u know what? its HIS site, he can choose to post or not post anything he wants (pretty much i think). if u dont like it, do as slappy said, go make ur own hate filled site about how shitty films are gonna be before they even come out. now im not saying that no matter what im gonna love kong, i anticipated rots in just the same way and now i realize its a flawed film and maybe didnt live up to my excitement in every way, but i still loved getting hyped over it in the months leading to its release. and if kong comes out being a big turd, i wont be afraid to admit it, but for now, every frame of film ive seen of this pic has me excited (as opposed to ghost rider), so thats what is driving this positive hype from me. so far.. it just looks good. thats my opinion, if u dont share it, thats fine, but please dont feel like u have to right post after post after post of how much this is going to suck, u dont know that yet. just like i havent said this is gonna be gold. ive only stated excitement in it, that doesnt mean im psychic and know it will either rule or suck, i just wanna see it.. now. that is all. (sorry for the long post, everytime i tried to end it i thought of more to say, u haters make me angry..)

    The font is better. and Kong, with his smooth look and massive arms reminds me of the Kong I fell in love with as a kid. Did you make this? I know it's not real.

    by slappy jones

    and so far they all have loved it....spoilers though so beware www.mirror.co.uk - look for the article "kong frontation" and another one here http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/newsid_4400000/newsid_4407800/4407852.stm and another one http://www.filmfocus.co.uk/newsdetail.asp?NewsID=484 myfavourite quote is this ""The truth is, making a trip to see 10 minutes of unfinished footage of this film held more worth than seeing, in entirety, some of the films we've seen this year." can't wait.

  • Nov. 13, 2005, 11:09 p.m. CST

    or is it??

    by BendersShinyAss

    Either way, I think Kong might actually be an interesting film. Lots of city street rampaging and dinosaur butt kicking. Lets just hope the other 2 hours and 15 minutes is worth the price of admission.

    Now THAT'S how Kong SHOULD look

    by BendersShinyAss

    Much more monstrous -- not just a big ape. More of a prehistoric Mammal from the lost world he comes from. Oh well. I think LOTRs has the same problems. Those Olyphants sould have been more monstrous also.

    That's right Goatzinger

    by mortsleam

    I appreciate that Harry created this website, and gives us tidbits and scoops and reviews of movies he likes. But I in no way, shape or form trust his judgment or value his opinions. And the fact that he likes shitty brainless action crap is a big part of that. I use this site to get a look at things I'm interested in, and make up my own mind about them. And I've come to the decision, based solely on my own response to what I've seen here, that King Kong looks like a movie that I will in all likelihood enjoy. I'm not saying it will be second coming, I don't even think it will deserve to win any awards other than on a technical level, but I do think that it will be an entertaining film. Not because Harry said so and not because you and OrsonBearer say it won't, because none of your opinions matter to me whatsoever. Sorry I can't put that in dyslexic retard for you.

    Ring, That's a Fan Poster

    by Dewder

    And so I don't think you'll find a high rez version of it anywhere. I do like the iconic quality of the poster you picked out, but it does have some scale issues; he appears about twice the size in that poster as he does in the film. One of the things Weta tried to avoid in this version was the major scale changes that took place in the '33 original - in many scenes kong went from 25ft to more than 100ft in some posters. This time around, however, we kept him the same size throughout.
