Photographer Jonathan Alcorn shares Universal Studio's latest publicity stunt, which is actually pretty cool: huge footprints left in the sand on Santa Monica Beach, complete with a crushed lifeguard vehicle. It's all for the new King Kong 3-D attraction, which opens at the theme park this summer. The previous King Kong was destroyed in a fire in 2008. Also destroyed was the backlot, which just reopened.

More photos from Alcorn can be found at his blog.
