Juggling in Movies

King Kong (2005)

[Peter Jackson film; Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody]

A greedy film producer assembles a team of moviemakers and sets out for the infamous Skull Island, where they find more than just cannibalistic natives.

Early in the movie there is a 1 minute vaudeville sequence that includes Daniel Tusia juggling and eating 3 apples for 2 seconds, followed by Sosina Wogayehu bounce juggling 3 balls while bent over backwards, and a bit later Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) dances and does several hat and acrobatic tricks that are all faked.

The Ann Darrow character tries to win over the giant ape by dancing and juggling. Digital effects were used that fail to make it appear that Naomi Watts is a capable juggler, juggling three rocks and doing shoulder throws and under the leg throws.
