universal had originally planned to make a more faithful remake of king kong (1933) to be titled "the legend of king kong", which was going to be a period piece, set in the 1930s. however, they backed out when this modern remake was announced.
a lot of pre-release publicity was given to a giant mechanical robot being built by carlo rambaldi, for use in this film. it appears on-screen for less than a minute in the final version
