‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Blu-ray Review

17 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Nick Thurston, Terry Notary, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer | Written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver | Directed by Matt Reeves

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  will be categorized as a summer blockbuster because of its release date, high budget, and extensive use of special effects. However, its story and character first mentality along with its stark wiliness to take chances makes it an almost anti-blockbusters. Now that is not to say it is void of thrilling action or inspired set-pieces. There is plenty of entertainment to be had. It is simply not driving the story and in many ways the least interesting aspect of the entire film. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  may be a sequel to an already rebooted franchise. That does not mean it cannot be filled with innovative »

'Planet of the Apes 3' Director Teases the Evolution of Caesar

10 November 2014 5:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While promoting the Blu-ray and DVD release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes on December 2, director Matt Reeves also offered updates about the the next installment, Planet of the Apes 3.

2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes showed Caesar rising up to lead his fellow apes, after being held in captivity at a lab. This year's sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, is set 15 years after the first film, with Caesar building a burgenoning community for his fellow apes in the woods near San Francisco. When asked about the third Planet of the Apes installment, Matt Reeves said that it will continue showing the path Caesar took to becoming a great ape leader.

"The first one is sort of how [Caesar] goes from humble beginnings to becoming a revolutionary. In Dawn, he really rose to the occasion of becoming a leader in really challenging and difficult times. »

Third "Apes" Turns Caesar Into A Legend

10 November 2014 3:24 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" director Matt Reeves is currently working on the story for the next chapter in the series and says it will be a painful one for Caesar (Andy Serkis).

Reeves is currently writing the script with Mark Bomback and confirmed in July that this sequel won't jump forward in time as some had speculated. It will likely see an all out war commencing, Reeves telling Coming Soon this week:

"The first one is sort of how [Caesar] goes from humble beginnings to becoming a revolutionary. In Dawn, he really rose to the occasion of becoming a leader in really challenging and difficult times.

The notion of what we're after with the third is to sort of continue that trajectory and see how he becomes a seminal figure in ape history. He almost becomes sort of like an ape Moses. A mythic status... We're trying to »

Mr Grey’s ‘Fifty Shades’ Tantalizing Titbit Tie Teaser Trailer

6 November 2014 12:28 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I may be overselling this one with that headline. They’ve gone to work with this second teaser trailer for Fifty Shades Of Grey and when I say to work, I mean in the sense of an advert for ties or possible Moss Boss suit hire.

The first teaser earlier this year was 15 seconds, and so this is one, but it’s all about what you do with it that counts, right?

Head down below and see if it gets you all excited and, er, if it does then we’re guessing you’ve got a thing for ties, it’s about ties…we’re sure:

Fifty Shades Of Grey is released in UK cinemas 13th February 2015.

The 24 Movie Is Possibly Taking Shape Again

1 September 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Could Jack Bauer finally, really, truly be coming to the big screen?  Maybe!  Talk of a 24 movie has been bubbling since deep into the Fox show’s run, as star Kiefer Sutherland and those involved behind the scenes have been keen on transporting Bauer’s ass-kicking and name-taking to movie theaters.  Movement began in earnest after the show’s series finale in 2010, but producer Brian Grazer and 20th Century Fox failed to get the film going after numerous drafts by screenwriters like Billy Ray and Mark Bomback, and even filing through directors such as Tony Scott and Antoine Fuqua.  It appeared that a movie wasn’t meant to be, and as Sutherland and Co. saw that it probably wasn’t going to happen, they resurrected Bauer in the form of a 12-episode limited series. Fox's 24: Live Another Day debuted this past May and garnered solid ratings for Bauer’s return, »

Will A Remake of the Original Planet of the Apes be Next for the Franchise?

26 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Where should Caesar and his apes go next? The critical and box office success of the two recent 'Apes' films starring Andy Serkis harkens back to the classic film Planet of the Apes and the novel it was based on. Will a remake of Planet of the Apes be next for the popular franchise?

 

When Pierre Boulle first wrote the novel Planet of the Apes in 1963, he had no inkling it would spawn a series of films that would stretch on into the 21st century. The 1968 film—starring Charlton Heston, written by Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling, and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton, the Boys from Brazil)—has become a sci-fi classic. Originally meant to be a stand-alone film, it was so successful, and Serling’s clever ending (which wasn’t in the book) added an extra layer of potential mythos to the story, that 20th Century Fox decided »
