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 »

The Definitive War Movies: 20-11

26 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.

20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Directed by: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II

The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

Icons and Friends: Our Favorite Horror Scores: Sequels!

17 May 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last month, we thought it would be fun to reach out to a few of our friends in the genre, in order to bring you readers an article all about our favorite horror scores. The reception and the contributions exceeded our expectations, so when it was mentioned that “you should do a sequel to that article”, naturally, the next step would be just that: Sequels. So, we asked a few more friends, as well as some of the Icons gang, to give you a few words about our favorite scores to horror sequels. Enjoy! -Jerry

Rob G. (Co-Creator, Icons Of Fright; Host, Killer Pov): Psycho III

For me, Carter Burwell’s original score for Psycho III is one of the best film soundtracks to a sequel ever. Bold words, I know! After all, considering the history of composers behind the Psycho franchise. You can’t think of Psycho without »
