It has been a while since we have received any
new updates on the upcoming Peter Jackson project King
Kong. Though I assumed the next update that would come
our way would be a teaser poster for the film [where the hell is it?], I
guess this 'First Official King Kong Cover' is the next best thing.
King Kong Cover
The good people over at Empire
Online have recently posted the cover to their next magazine
issue. Who crowds the page? Nobody other than King Kong of course.
The intriguing image offers the first glimpse of director Peter Jackson's take on the original movie's famous climax atop the Empire State Building and also offers the first real insight into the relationship between Naomi Watts' Ann Darrow and the big ape.
Even more significantly for Empire, it is our first cover to be created entirely inside a computer, with the photo-realistic image specially rendered for us by the wizards at Weta.

For a larger version of the King Kong cover above,
head over to Empire
Online. Now my only question is that if Weta can quickly render
this image for the cover of Empire, how the heck do we not have
a movie poster yet? Just give us something, the simplest of teasers.
