VOD Spotlight: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

16 December 2014 3:00 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes traces the path of the apes’ evolution from the mostly mute — though intelligent — animals of Rise of the Planet of the Apes to the articulate, civilized beings that have become the Earth’s dominant species shown in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Director Matt Reeves explains: “In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the apes said only a few words. With this film, we show the apes at the dawn of their society, learning to truly speak.” Co-screenwriter Mark Bomback says that one of the script’s biggest challenges was how to … Continue reading →

The strange history of the Die Hard movies

9 December 2014 5:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Die Hard series may be alive and well, but there's a unique story behind the writing of each one…

As any action fanatic will tell you, Die Hard is among the best films of its type ever made. Tautly directed by John McTiernan, deceptively well shot by cinematographer Jan de Bont, and full of charismatic turns from Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, it’s seldom been bettered, even by its sequels.

The key to the first film's success, and the sequels in their best moments, is hero John McClane. Tough, sarcastic but ultimately human and relatable, he cuts a very different figure from the beefed-up, larger-than-life heroes of 1980s and 90s action cinema. When John McClane gets shot or injured, he actually feels pain. It's something we were keenly aware of in the 1988 original, but gradually ebbed away as the Die Hard franchise drifted from thriller territory »

No Plans For "Planet of the Apes" Remake

5 December 2014 7:17 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Out doing the promotional rounds for the home video release of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the film's director spoke with JoBlo about the upcoming third film in the series and how there's still a lot of ground to cover before they reach the events of the 1968 original. In fact, even if we do get to that point, it's likely we'll see a different spin on the original classic rather than a straight-up remake:

"To me the idea is that the 1968 films stands as trajectory in that, what is so exciting is that the world of that film is so different from where things started in Rise, and the way they are in Dawn and now will be in the next film. There is a huge distance to cover between here and there that is all about Caesar and future generations, and how this world has transformed into that world, »

Matt Reeves Discusses Planet Of The Apes Films Leading to 1968 Story

4 December 2014 12:28 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

What I love about these new Planet of the Apes films that are being made, is that we know what everything is leading up to. It's just really interesting to see the road being paved to the original 1968 movie. Somewhere down the line, some poor astronaut returns to earth only to find that it has been taken over by apes. 

In an interview with JoBlo, director Matt Reeves talks about the upcoming coming sequel that he's developing. One of the things he says is that the next chapter in the story might just reach the point of the original movie. 

Reeves talks about his excitement about Caesar and where his story will take him, and he goes into a lot of detail.

"Well it’s interesting because Mark Bomback and I are working on the next story, and I have to say given the trajectory of how his arc has »

'Planet of the Apes 3' Director Won't Remake Original 1968 Movie

4 December 2014 11:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When 20th Century Fox revived their Planet of the Apes franchise with the beloved 2011 action-drama Rise of the Planet of the Apes, many fans wondered if this story, which charts the origins of the leader ape Caesar (Andy Serkis), would ever eventually merge with the 1968 classic Planet of the Apes. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves has revealed in a new interview with JoBlo that there is still a lot of ground to cover before reaching that point, which goes far beyond the follow-up Planet of the Apes 3, currently slated for release on July 29, 2016. And if and when that point is reached, it won't be a remake of the Charlton Heston original.

Here's what the filmmaker had to say, revealing that he doesn't exactly want to remake the 1968 original. But events from that story may be told through a different perspective.

‘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.
