Wow.  The first movie trailer for the upcoming King Kong remake via Peter Jackson went on-line tonight (starting tomorrow, it plays in theaters before The War of the Worlds).  I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I think it looks terrific.

Like The Shadow, it uses a stylized version of the 1930s, but with deep, rich colors instead of beautiful black and white.  Some of the CGI effects look as if they need some additional tweaking (Mr. Jackson still has a few months before the Christmas premiere), but I'm guessing everything will look perfect when the big guy finally arrives in theaters.  I'm hooked.

King Kong, of course, isn't the only big hairy lug I'm hooked on.  There's also the Favorite Bear of the Moment...
