What feels like a lifetime ago we abandoned our good vessel rowed ashore one evening and paid a very rare visit to a nearby picture house where we sheathed our cutlasses for two hours as we endured a celluloid car crash called Planet Of The Apes which starred Mark Wahlberg under the direction of Tim Burton.
The film was so monementally bad we didn’t even have the energy to go pillaging for at least a month later. Fast forward ten years, (has a decade really passed that quickly?) and 20th Century Fox have released their official trailer for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes directed by Rupert Wyatt, who previously directed the brilliant Brian Cox movie The Escapist.
This movie also stars Coxy as well as Andy Serkis, James Franco and John Lithgow in what appears to be an effort to strip back the Apes franchise, wipe the board clean and start again with a more promising effort in the form of an origin story.
We’ll probably row ashore once more when Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is released in August.
