The Eighth Wonder is an unrealized King Kong film proposal conceived by Merian C. Cooper.


With the success of a 1952 King Kong reissue, Merian C. Cooper began thinking about the viability of bringing Kong to the Cinerama process in some form. He brought in Willis O'Brien to help develop the project, and Cinerama employee Cunningham to create a new camera system that could capture stop-motion in the widescreen format.

Stop-motion would later be captured in the Cinerama process in the first of the only two fictional films shot in the format, 1962's The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm.
