The Empire State Building in King Kong (2005)

In the remake of the 1933 film, Kong once again grabs Ann and takes her to the top of the Empire State Building to observe the dawning day, repeating the sign for "beautiful" Ann had used in his lair, causing a shocked Ann to realize his intelligence. Before Ann is able to attempt further communication, six Curtiss Helldivers appear and attack them. Kong makes his last stand against the planes, downing three of them, only to be hit by several bursts of gunfire from the surviving planes. He gazes at a distraught Ann one last time before falling off the building to his death.

  • The Empire State Building was the tallest building in New York City and the entire world from its completion in 1931 until the completion of the North Tower of the World Trade Center in 1970. For this reason, the World Trade Center was included as the stage for the climax of the 1976 remake of King Kong instead of the Empire State Building.
  • Following the September 11 terrorist attacks which destroyed both original towers of the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building became the tallest building in the city again until One World Trade Center surpassed it in 2012.
