Its official! King Kong will be released in a kong sized 3-hour version and the final official production budget will stand at 207 million dollars!! Read that again. Two Hundred and Seven Million Dollars! That makes it the most expensive movie ever made in hollywood - and that pretty much means on the planet. And even though Kong is no longer the most anticipated movie of next few months for me (having been surpassed by Good Night and Good Luck solely on the strength of its great trailer and a bit of background research that the trailer made me do), I'll still most likely see it the weekend it releases.
I know that's not saying much considering that I'm going to see Goblet of Fire on the day of release too. :)
