FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 17, 2006) – Top independent home entertainment company Genius Products, LLC has set November 21, 2006, for the DVD release of BKN’s all-new feature length animated movie, KONG: RETURN TO THE JUNGLE. The only Kong feature length film produced entirely in 3D CGI, the new movie presents a compelling new story, as told by master producer/creator Rick Ungar (“X-Men,” “Spider-Man,” “Fantastic Four”), filled with all the elements of a successful Hollywood epic, including suspense, action, romance and drama.
The new animated DVD release continues the incredibly successful franchise based on the original 1933 movie widely known for its innovative, first-of-their-kind special effects, first-of-its kind plot, famous performances and a final sequence that remains unequalled as an eye-popping cinematic experience. In 2005, Peter Jackson’s hugely popular theatrical release again pushed the envelope in modern cinematography and special effects to capture a new generation of Kong fans.
Kong returns in this action-filled feature length animated film. This time our hero finds himself captured, along with the other remarkable animal inhabitants of Kong Island and transported to a state-of-the-art zoo on the Island of Manhattan . But lest you think our Kong will suffer the same fate as his ancestor in the Big Apple, think again. This is not your father’s Kong!
The DVD will be offered with a Suggested Retail Price of $19.95.
