With the upcoming release of Godzilla Vs. Kong, Kong fever is reaching a fever pitch. The eternal battle of who’ll win is definitely high in the air. Scream Factory has those out there covered who are looking for all things Kong though. The 1976 remake of King Kong might not be the most well regarded film in the franchise, but it holds a special place in fan’s hearts. Coming May 11th, 2021, the Collector’s Edition of King Kong is coming to Blu-Ray. Here’s the official synopsis for the film.
The timeless story of a beauty (Jessica Lange) and a beast comes to the screen in this ambitious production from Dino De Laurentiis. Charles Grodin is the scheming oil company shark out to exploit the giant beast to his fullest. And Jeff Bridges is the desperate hero, Jack Prescott, who attempts to wrest the beautiful heroine from King Kong’s grasp. New York City trembles with each echoing footstep of the towering ape set loose in the streets!Scream Factory
We don’t have the list of extras because they’re in progress, which can only mean that Scream Factory is looking to juice the hell out of this thing! However, the set is coming with the original theatrical feature film and the extended TV version. But if you pre-order, you’ll get an exclusive 18″ X 24″ poster featuring the brand new artwork on the cover of the release.
So get excited to rewatch this collector’s edition of the 1976 vision of King Kong. I know I am.
