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 »

Could We Be Getting Another Planet Of The Apes Remake?

26 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There's been a lot of talk recently about the direction in which the Planet Of The Apes franchise will be going, and a lot of that talk has been about just how and when the original 1968 film will fit in. The original blueprint for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes would have seen the series make a huge leap from the ending of 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes straight to a time and place that seemed like a midway point between what we'd just seen and what was to come. However, Matt Reeves wanted to take a slower, more Caesar-centric approach to the future, and now we've gotten our first clue just what all of this is possibly leading up to: we might be getting another re-imagined version of the 1968 classic. Creative Screenwriting recently spoke with Mark Bomback, the man who's pretty much the mind behind »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Writer Hints at Direction of Third Film

25 July 2014 2:39 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Matt Reeves recently said that even though the "Planet of the Apes" franchise will have to return to the 1968 film, there are plenty of stories to tell before getting there. But according to "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" writer Mark Bomback just revealed that the original film is definitely on everyone's minds. "The challenge that we're up against . and I think we'll be even more aware of it in the next film . is how we circle back to the original franchise's fundamental premise that apes have taken over the earth and humans are their prey," he said. "How do you get back to the 1968 universe that started it all?" Bomback continued: "Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who wrote 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' did something really brilliant where they launch the Icarus [the spaceship in the original 1968 film]. I remember when I read the draft I said, 'What a great idea. »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a Tearjerker?: A Movie Review

24 July 2014 8:56 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Matt Reeves. Writers: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Pierre Boulle. Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell and Kodi Smit-McPhee. It has been three years since a Planet of the Apes film has been released (2011) and fourty-five years since the first Planet of the Apes film launched (1968). This time, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves helms the chaos between humans and apes. And, events in Reeves' interpretation are overly sombre. As well, the material is approached with a very serious viewpoint. Tears and frowns are the order of the day. Still, the film's climax offers a few interesting conflicts and most of the characters are well drawn, even with the use of computer enhanced imagery. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a light recommend, for those with a penchant for science fiction, action thrillers. The story takes place ten years after the previous film. »

Steady Yourselves – The First Trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey is Here

24 July 2014 5:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

At the start of the week, the first preview for Fifty Shades of Grey landed online in a pretty unexpected place – Beyoncé’s Instagram. The footage teased the arrival of the full trailer today, and Focus and Universal have delivered, as promised.

Adapting E.L. James’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy, the film is dated for Valentine’s 2015, and I’m seriously wondering if birth rates will have a measurable rise when November 2015 rolls around.

Here’s the synopsis from the original novel:

As literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey for the student newspaper, she finds him attractive, enigmatic and intimidating. Convinced their meeting went badly, she tries to put Grey out of her mind – until he happens to turn up at the store where she works part-time. Ana, innocent and unworldly, is shocked to find herself desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, »

With Comic-Con fast approaching later this week, it’s easy to forget that 2015 will play host to some very high-profile films that won’t be making an appearance in San Diego.

The first trailer is set to launch this coming Thursday, right when we’re expecting to start seeing footage emerge from Comic-Con, which makes for a very interesting choice from Universal and Focus.

Courtesy of Amazon, here’s the synopsis for E.L. James’ original novel:

When literature student Anastasia Steele interviews successful entrepreneur Christian Grey, she finds him very attractive and deeply intimidating. Convinced that their meeting went badly, she tries to put him out of her mind – until he turns up at the store where she works part-time, and invites her out. »

Matt Reeves talks Planet of the Apes 3

19 July 2014 3:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes currently tearing up the box office and garnering near universal praise [read our two ★★★★★ reviews here and here], director Matt Reeves has offered up some insight into where the already-announced third movie (which is set for July 26th, 2016) may head during an interview with The Playlist. Be warned, spoilers for the end of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Mark Bomback and I are going to be writing the next one and we have a lot of ideas but you know we’re going to take a moment to breathe. We just finished this one so we’ll see where it goes but we have a lot of ideas we just have to sit down and start it all up again. But it’s really important to me that whatever we do next is something that can be better than Dawn, so hopefully we can achieve that aim. »

Matt Reeves Hints At The Plot Of The Next Planet Of The Apes Movie

18 July 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Without getting into spoiler territory, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes does give is a proper ending, but at the same time leaves things open for the next film as we head towards the events of the original Planet Of The Apes. We know director Matt Reeves will return to helm (and write) the threequel, and during a very interesting chat with The Playlist he drops a few hints as to what story it might follow. Reeves says that he and co-writer Mark Bomback haven't finalized anything yet and are still tossing ideas around -- but it certainly sounds like there's a few elements that they're at least leaning heavily towards. "I don't necessarily think that there will be as big a leap between films. I see Casear as a seminal figure in ape history and he's a mythic character. He's essentially like their Moses and I think Caesar »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review: people get ready

18 July 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We need a bigger word than humanist.

That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Review

16 July 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | 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 »
