I really enjoyed the reboot to “Planet of the Apes”. Being a fan of the original series because my parents showed them all to me (does everyone know that there were five original “Planet of the Apes” movies and that the reboot “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” was based on the original series forth movie? “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” And that the sequel is based on the fifth entry in the original series “Battle for the Planet of the Apes”?) back in the day and I loved them.
As much as the makeup doesn’t stand up to time as it once did, those originals are great. However the Tim Burton re imagining of the franchise in 2001’s “Planet of the Apes” was terrible and I am so glad that Fox has gotten it right with “Rise” and the upcoming “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”.
Check out the trailer, let me know what you think:
