King Kong (2005)

Coming off the back of the success of Lord of the Rings, director Peter Jackson took on the challenge of retelling the classic cinematic tale of King Kong. Andy Serkis was in fine form once again, taking on the role of Kong in a mo-cap suit, displaying why he’s one of the best physical actors in Hollywood.

To create his masterpiece film, a greedy film producer assembles a crew and some actors to sail to Skull Island, where legend has it, native cannibals reside. Upon setting foot on the island, they all soon come to realize there are far worse, and bigger monsters than cannibals, who themselves worship Kong, the king of Skull Island.
