Announced today, the 1976 version of King Kong is getting a Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release from Scream Factory this year, part of the company’s releases for the month of May 2021.
In director John Guillermin’s 1976 film, “The Petrox company’s search for new oil reserves on a strange island unleashes a terror unseen by civilized man – KING KONG!”
“The timeless story of a beauty (Jessica Lange) and a beast comes to the screen in this ambitious production from Dino De Laurentiis. Charles Grodin is the scheming oil company shark out to exploit the giant beast to his fullest. And Jeff Bridges is the desperate hero, Jack Prescott, who attempts to wrest the beautiful heroine from King Kong’s grasp. New York City trembles with each echoing footstep of the towering ape set loose in the streets!”
“Extras will be announced on a later date. However, we can confirm already that we will be presenting both the original theatrical feature film AND the extended TV version!”
