King Kong is the main anti-hero of the 1933 American adventure monster film King Kong and its various remakes and reimaginings.
When a film crew led by director Carl Denham travels to an uncharted island in hostile waters to film an ambitious movie, they are greeted by a tribe of natives that worships the monsters as a deity. When the monster appears, the crew captures it and brings it to New York City.
King Kong resembles an enormous gorilla standing 30 feet in height when standing upright.
