Brief Synopsis:
The sequence of several events on Skull Island have been altered in order to try and pick up the pace of the film and to be more like the original 1933 version.
Intention:
I wanted to see if I could restructure the extended edition of King Kong to be more like the original 1933 version and clock in at 2 hours. And, the answer is, yeah, sorta.
Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Editing Details:
This cut begins and ends with Denham as did the ’33 with other characters rising to the fore and falling back as the story progresses. The rules I laid out for myself were:

1) The pacing could never be rushed or choppy;

2) The love stories had to remain intact as they are the core of the movie; and

3) No action scenes could be cut, because really, what’s the point without them.

2 hours soon became a very unrealistic goal if I was going to adhere to my rules. So, now, it clocks in at 2 hours 35 minutes minus credits. Not too bad.
Cuts and Additions:


–Vaudeville is gone.
–We’re on the boat and sailing by the 15 minute mark and at the island at
the 35 minute mark.
–Jimmy and Mr. Hayes are no longer prominent. I am in the minority, I
think, in liking these two character, and cut them for time purposes
only.
–No juggling for Kong
–Denham is not quite as dark as he was, though this was to save time and
not redeem the character.
–There are other numerous cuts that effect pacing and scene progression.
Much of the editing involved looking for a minute here or a shot there
that wouldn’t be missed.
–The sequence of several events on Skull Island have been altered in order to try and pick up the pace of the film.
