Has Jackson said anything about an EE or is everybody just assuming there will be because of LOTR?

I would actually settle for a single release with DTS and a commentary with Jackson and Watts. I already have the Production Diaries set, so I can't imagine needing any more behind-the-scenes info about Kong.

I'm sure the deluxe edition, assuming there is one, will have all the post production diaries which I'm pretty interested in seeing given how much I enjoyed the production diaries and the LOTR EE extras.

People keep being sure of this however it is apparently not true.

On The Production Diaries it mentioned somewhere that they had two crews going around documenting the making of the film. A small one making the production diaries and a second crew work on the special edition DVD. That being said I'm expecting a second release later on.

At any rate i'm in for the first release and then will double dip if they do a second. Just because I've always been a kong fan.

My thoughts exactly. I'll double dip if one comes out, but will be definately buying the first one on the release date.

MrVette99, thread crapping is against forum rules. If you aren't interested in this DVD release, then please do not post in the thread.

Very true. If that's the single-disc art, then that's not too shabby. Wonder if that'll be the same art for the SE 2-discer - or if they will use that movie poster of Kong's up-close-and-personal face shot.

I'm definitely in for the 2-disc of this and anything else they release later.

Figures, Universal is using the exact same strategy like Ray and Cinderella Man. Single disc edition for the rental market and people who don't care about extras and a really expensive 2 disc set. I guess I'm going for the 2 disc set. It will probably be like 29.99 or 31.99 on release day. But, my guess the 2 disc set will keep me satisfied.

As long as Kong isn't DVD-18, sign me up for 2-disc edition.

Looking forward to the inevitable extended edition with 20 more minutes of 'meaningful' stares between Watts and Kong re-inserted into the film.

If Kong is double-sided and no DTS, I'm gonna be Kong-sized PISSED.

It's Universal, of course it will be a DVD-18. The movie will probably be split up on two sides. The second disc will probably be the only extras, and most likely will only be in the $35 set.

I really want there to be a studio cut of the film that cuts it down to 2 hours. This is one film, I do not even want to see what the full director's cut looks like.

but from what I have read (Entertainment Weekly) some of the deleted scenes were action in nature:

- an aquatic dinosaur encounter
- more scenes of Kong and the army in NYC

but as ChrisKnudsen noted - I think the three hour theatrical cut was pushing it - the deleted scenes as a supplement are enough for me, as well.

They wouldn't do that to King Kong. I hope.
