War for the Planet of the Apes bringing back a character from the 1968 film

22 December 2016 12:56 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the latest instalment of 20th Century Fox’s rebooted Planet of the Apes series is set to introduce a character who will be familiar to fans of the original 1968 movie, with Entertainment Weekly unveiling a piece of concept art for War for the Planet of the Apes featuring Nova, played by Amiah Miller. Check it out here…

Nova is of course the mute woman who featured opposite Charlton Heston’s Taylor in the original Planet of the Apes and its sequel Beneath the Planet of the Apes, where she was portrayed by Linda Harrison.

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his ape companions will encounter Nova during their mission to find and kill The Colonel (Woody Harrelson), with director Matt Reeves stating that: ““The battle is not just between the humans and the apes, but in Caesar’s soul. The girl is his pull back to his empathy and »

War For The Planet Of The Apes Concept Art & Plot Details Confirm Appearance by Nova

22 December 2016 8:37 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director Matt Reeves may be taking the Planet of the Apes franchise in a new direction with War for the Planet of the Apes, but the upcoming sequel has now been confirmed to feature a character familiar to fans of 1968's Planet of the Apes.

New concept art unveiled by EW features the gorilla Luca (Michael Adamthwaite) sharing a tender moment with a mute girl known as Nova (Amiah Miller), who EW reveals is the same character portrayed by Linda Harrison in the '68 film.

It's not yet known if Nova's destiny will still be on track to meet astronaut Taylor (played by Charlton Heston in the original Planet of the Apes movie), or if she'll instead take a different path in the new films, but as Reeves told EW, she'll play a key role in Caesar's (Andy Serkis) inner turmoil:

Andy Serkis says War for the Planet of the Apes is darker, more brutal and tougher in tone

11 December 2016 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week saw 20th Century Fox releasing the trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the studio’s relaunched Apes franchise, which will see Caesar leading his apes in a full-scale war against the humans, led by Woody Harrelson’s The Colonel.

In an interview with Collider, Andy Serkis has been chatting about the tone of the hotly-anticipated threequel, describing it as “much darker, brutal, harder [and] tougher” than its two predecessors.

“[Caesar is] now living in a situation where both apes and humans are at war. There’s a sense that this is the crux, this is the climactic moment where both species are under huge threat and it’s pretty apocalyptic. This is a much darker, much more brutal, harder, tougher, very brutal film. As brutal as you can get within a PG-13. Not in an overly graphic way but in its emotions and context. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

10 December 2016 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

War is coming to the Planet of the Apes franchise this coming summer – quite literally – as 20th Century Fox unleashes the third instalment of its rebooted series, War for the Planet of the Apes. The film sees Andy Serkis reprising the role of Caesar as he leads the apes into an all-out battle for survival against the humans, led by Woody Harrelson’s The Colonel.

Fox released the first trailer for the threequel on Friday [watch it here, if you haven’t seen it], and here’s the initial thoughts from our writing team…

Matt Spencer-Skeen: After a week of teasers and trailers from all over the place you’d think we’d be sick by now but this has got me far more excited than anything else we’ve seen. Serkis has been great across this entire trilogy and Woody Harrelson might be able to deliver what Gary Oldman couldn’t quite do in the last film as »

Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Bfg’ Comes to Life in New Trailer and Full Cannes Press Conference

15 May 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following the Cannes premiere of Steven Spielberg’s follow-up to Bridge of Spies, his adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s The Bfg, Disney has released a new full-length trailer for the adventure, giving away much more of the titular character’s fantasy-filled world. Coming from the late E.T. scribe Melissa Mathison, the story follows a young girl, Sophie, who guides the Queen of England and the Bfg (Mark Rylance, coming off his Oscar win for Spielberg) — a big, friendly giant — to stop Bloodbottlers, the big and unfriendly sort, from eating children.

Unfortunately, we were mixed on the film, saying in our review from the festival, “CGI loses the day in Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg, a partly motion-captured, eco-minded adaptation of Roald Dahl’s adored children’s book that leans so heavily on green-screen trickery that even Mark Rylance’s kind eyes — squinting out from that computer-generated abyss — can’t save it from mediocrity. »

‘The Phoenix Incident’ Review

28 April 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Adamthwaite, Troy Baker, James L. Brewster, James C. Burns, Holgie Forrester, Karl Girolamo, Matthew Grant Godbey, William Goldman, Yuri Lowenthal, Elise Muller, Liam O’Brien | Written and Directed by Keith Arem

Strange and otherwise terrifying things tend to happen on Friday the 13th, at least according to superstition and a certain horror franchise featuring a machete-wielding maniac, but it was on Thursday the 13th of March, in 1997, that the residents of Phoenix, Arizona experienced a good deal of unusual activity. On that night, an unidentified flying object was spotted and filmed by thousands of people in both Phoenix and Sonora, Mexico, and to date, the strange v-shaped pattern of lights has never quite been explained – at least not in any sort of satisfying way.

Leave it to a horror movie to come along and offer up a possible explanation.
