Just like Godzilla, Gamera and their kaiju kin, King Kong was to be the star of many an unmade film. In this new book learn of a plethora of prequels, sequels, and even in-between-quels to the 1933 King Kong. From Merian C. Cooper himself came ideas for The New Adventures of King Kong (1933) to chronicle Kong and Denham's journey to New York; Tarzan vs. King Kong (1934), a Technicolor prequel set on Skull Island; and Space Kong (1969), a psychedelic sequel set in space! Learn the tragic history behind Willis O'Brien's King Kong vs. Frankenstein that lead to the making of King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) plus Kong's original starring role in what became Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (1966). Unmade remakes like The Legend of King Kong plus unmade sequels to Dino De Laurentiis's King Kong (1976) and King Kong Lives (1986) are also covered. In addition to these unmade films, readers can also explore the detailed histories behind these Kong imitators: Konga (1961), The Mighty Gorga (1969), Queen Kong (1976), A*P*E (1976), and Mighty Peking Man (1977).

From classics like King Kong, to beloved B–movies like The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, to blockbusters like Jurassic Park, it’s easy to see that filmmakers and audiences alike love to see dinosaurs on the screen. This comprehensive filmography, arranged alphabetically by title, contains entries that include basic facts (year of release, country of origin, studio, and running time), followed by a concise plot summary, the author’s critical commentary, information on the production and the people behind it, and secrets of the often-ingenious special effects. Three useful appendices feature films with minor dinosaur content, planned but unfinished dinosaur movies, and the quasi-dinosaurs of Toho Studios. To be included, a movie must depict one or more representations of a “prehistoric reptile.” Inaccurate portrayals are included, as long as the intent is to represent a real or fictional dinosaur. Not eligible are films featuring prehistoric mammals, prehistoric humans or humanoids, and beasts of mythology—unless, of course, the movie also has a dinosaur.

It was nearly 50 years ago now that Jaws swam into cinemas and shocked theater goers. In its wake it left numerous sequels and rip-offs like Orca, Jaws 2, Piranha, The Last Shark, Jaws 3-D, Monster Shark, and Jaws: The Revenge to name only a handful. But you knew about those already, didn't you? But what about the sequels and rip-offs that never surfaced to terrify audiences... movies like Bert I. Gordon's Devil Fish, Dino De Laurentiis's Orca Part II, and John Sayles' Sea Dragon of Loch Ness, ever hear about those? What about the spoof Jaws 3, People 0, that eventually became Jaws 3-D? Did you know Jaws 2 began shooting with a different cast, director, and a darker version of the script before it was retooled by studio executives? And lastly, were there ever any real plans for a Jaws 5? From the author of Kong Unmade: The Lost Films of Skull Island take a deep dive into the murky history of the Jaws sequels, prequels, remakes, and rip-offs that never saw the light of day in Jaws Unmade!

How do some monuments become so socially powerful that people seek to destroy them? After ignoring monuments for years, why must we now commemorate public trauma, but not triumph, with a monument? To explore these and other questions, Robert S. Nelson and Margaret Olin assembled essays from leading scholars about how monuments have functioned throughout the world and how globalization has challenged Western notions of the "monument." Examining how monuments preserve memory, these essays demonstrate how phenomena as diverse as ancient drum towers in China and ritual whale-killings in the Pacific Northwest serve to represent and negotiate time. Connecting that history to the present with an epilogue on the World Trade Center, Monuments and Memory, Made and Unmade is pertinent not only for art historians but for anyone interested in the turbulent history of monuments—a history that is still very much with us today.

The films of John Carpenter cover a tremendous range and yet all bear his clear personal stamp. From the horrifying (Halloween) to the touching (Starman) to the controversial (The Thing) to the comic (Big Trouble in Little China), his films reflect a unique approach to filmmaking and singular views of humanity and American culture. This analysis of Carpenter's films includes a historical overview of his career, and in-depth entries on each of his films, from 1975's Dark Star to 1998's Vampires. Complete cast and production information is provided for each. The book also covers those films written and produced by Carpenter, such as Halloween II and Black Moon Rising, as well as Carpenter's work for television. Appendices are included on films Carpenter was offered but turned down, the slasher films that followed in the wake of the highly-successful Halloween, the actors and characters who make repeated appearances in Carpenter's films, and ratings for Carpenter's work. Notes, bibliography, and index are included.
