King Kong Unleashes a Beast of a DVD

When the visual-effects team for King Kong took to the stage to accept their Oscar earlier this month, they made a point to thank Andy Serkis. It's not very often that actors are cited by visual-effects winners, but then again Serkis is no ordinary actor. For the Lord of the Rings trilogy, he created the voice and movements of the Gollum-Smeagol character. For King Kong, he took on the role of no less than the great ape. TVGuide.com caught up with the Brit for the occasion of Kong's March 28 DVD release to get an idea of exactly what's involved when bringing mythic creatures to life.

I'm confused: I keep hearing ...

Question: I'm confused: I keep hearing people talk about the "spider sequence" in King Kong, but I don't remember any spiders in the old movie. Is it something that was added for the new version and, if so, what exactly is it?
