They just relased a budget priced single disc of King Kong (1933).

I tried searching to see if this was already posted somewhere, but the search function wasn't working properly.

The part in bold seems a bit odd.

Yeah I noticed this a few weeks ago when Virgin Megastore had it for 10 dollars. I was curious if it was a misprint so when I went to check it out, nope. It was just the 1st disc in uglier packaging.

This seems to be the new Warner thing with 2 disc sets. Disc one always has the trailer (The batman movies, Willie Wonka, War of the Worlds etc)

Wow, considering just how stellar that second disc of King Kong is I almost consider it a crime to buy the single disc. However, this is the norm now for Warner releases.

Well I meant "just" as in that it's way more recent than the release from last year.
