Trailer for The King of Kong Documentary
The King of Kong is a documentary that first popped up at a few film festivals with quite a bit of buzz and is about the 80's video game fad and two dueling Donkey Kong players. It's quite similar to Chasing Ghosts, another 80's video game documentary that debuted at Sundance, but I've heard an even better response to this one. New Line Cinema has also already approved a feature film (aka fictionalized version) to be made based on this documentary, which I'm pretty sure will be quite interesting. Give this little indie documentary some support and check out the trailer!

I'd love to know if this is a fake-umentory or the real deal. Looks good never the less.

Cool. I love these look-backs at videogames of the early 1980s :))

I saw the premier last night. It's definitely not a fake-umentory! The producer, director, and the the Wiebe family featured in the film were present for a Q & A afterwards. There was one point where I wondered if some of the drama was staged, but after the Q & A, it became quite clear this was all 100% real! The movie was AWESOME. Everyone should see it!
