DVD Release Date: 28 March 2006

A movie with a title character as big as King Kong deserves a DVD of equally epic proportions! Universal Studios has stepped up to that expectation with three presentation offerings: widescreen, full screen, or a 2-Disc Widescreen Special Edition. If you choose either of the single disc options, you’ll receive a copy of the over three-hour movie in Dolby Digital 5.1 (English), with subtitles in English, Spanish and French, as well as two bonus features: The Volkswagen Toureg & King Kong (a cross promotion commercial) and Wish You Were Here (a video postcard from the cast and crew). If you go for the double disc package, you’ll get all of the above plus a special introduction by director Peter Jackson, and three documentaries: Post-Production Diaries (Peter Jackson takes you on an unforgettable journey revealing virtually every aspect of post-production with nearly three hours of exclusive behind the scenes footage), Kong’s New York, 1933 (1930s New York comes alive in this fascinating piece that explores vaudeville, the skyscraper boom, the construction of the Empire State building and more) and Skull Island: A Natural History (travel to treacherous Skull Island with Peter Jackson and his crew). This larger-than-life DVD is sure to keep big fans busy for hours.
