NEW YORK PREMIERE OF ‘THE KING OF KONG’ WITH DONKEY KONG CHAMP IN PERSON
SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2007
Queens will have its second big movie premiere of the year (after Spider-Man 3), when the Museum of the Moving Image presents a special screening of The King of Kong: A Fistful of Dollars, an acclaimed new documentary about an epic rivalry for the world record in the classic video arcade game Donkey Kong. In addition to director Seth Gordon and producer Ed Cunningham, the reigning Donkey Kong champion Steve Wiebe will appear in person at the Museum on Sunday, August 12, at 3:00 p.m. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and a Donkey Kong demonstration in the Museum galleries. Free with Museum admission. Reservation privileges are available for Museum members only. Call 718.784.4520.

In The King of Kong: A Fist of Dollars, filmmakers Seth Gordon and Ed Cunningham capture the battle for arcade-game supremacy between suburban father Steve Wiebe and video-game legend—and hot-sauce mogul—Billy Mitchell in this engaging and entertaining documentary. An intimate and surprising look at a wildly arcane subculture, this film is about much more than a game. Variety film critic Ronnie Scheib describes the film as “an intricate tale of intrigues, tourneys, minions and fools that would put a Renaissance court to shame.” Visit the official website at www.billyvssteve.com to view the trailer. The King of Kong opens in theaters on August 17.
