The Question: In 2005, Peter Jackson directed a remake of what 1933 movie?
“King Kong” opened in theaters in 1933, changing the movie landscape forever and revolutionizing stop-motion animation. More than 70 years later, New Zealand director Peter Jackson put his own spin on the movie, remaking it with advanced computer graphics for a modern audience. His version is almost twice as long as the original and includes much more exposition, but it was a success nonetheless, becoming one of 2005’s highest-grossing movies.
The correct answer is King Kong.
