In an attempt to save his movie from impatient Hollywood producers, guerrilla (ahem!) director Carl Denham (Black) packs a small film crew onto a tramp steamer and sets sail for the mysterious Skull Island to finish his picture. On arrival at the eerie island, the crew, including writer Jack Driscoll (Brody) and actress Ann Darrow (Watts), are set upon by natives and Darrow is captured as a sacrifice to the island's terrible secret - a 25-foot ape called Kong. However, the normally vicious Kong is drawn to Darrow and instead of eating her, protects her from the island's other horrible inhabitants - dinosaurs and massive insects. With his film plans in pieces, Denham decides to capture Kong and take him back to America to recoup his losses - but Kong won't go without a fight. With King Kong, Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson confirms his place in the pantheon of contemporary epic filmmakers. The cinematic viewing doesn't end there this evening, Channel 4 are screening Babel, , starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Gael Garcia Bernal, at 10.10pm.
