King Kong is a 2005 epic monster film co-written, produced, and directed by Peter Jackson. A remake of the 1933 film of the same name, the film stars Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, and, through motion capture, Andy Serkis as the title character.

There they encounter Kong, a legendary giant gorilla, whom they capture and display in New York City, with tragic results.

EXT. SKIES OVER FRANCE 1917 - DAY

CAMERA drifts towards a large puffy cloud floating 6000ft above the

French countryside ...

... a roar of engines - sounding like angry buzzing bees - and three

... six ... NINE SOPWITH CAMEL FIGHTER PLANES emerge from the cloud,

flying in tight formation. These are frail looking, but deadly single

seat BIPLANES, each armed with twin Vickers machine guns. The height of

1917 aircraft design, built for the sole purpose of blasting German

planes out of the skies.

SUPER "FRANCE 1917"

JACK DRISCOLL and his buddy, MATT HAMON are flying two of the CAMELS at

the rear of the formation. An UPTIGHT BRIT - McKECKNIE, is flying along

side them. He's as JUMPY AS HELL, scanning the skies for enemy planes.

MATT looks around furtively. None of the other pilots are looking in

their direction. With practiced skill, MATT reaches down for something

in his tiny cockpit ... HE STANDS UP, wedging the control column

between his knees and turns back towards JACK'S Camel ... a BASEBALL IN

HIS HAND!! With equal proficiency, JACK jams his control column between

his knees and stands, brandishing a BASEBALL BAT! Both pranksters have

to fight against the fierce slipstream as MATT THROWS THE BALL.I across

fifty feet of sky towards JACK! He prepares to swing, but the ball

FALLS SHORT, getting MINCED in JACK'S propeller! A quick look around to

make sure no one is looking, and MATT reaches down again, grabbing

ANOTHER BASEBALL out of the bag of balls he carries in his cockpit!
