Palme d'Or winner 'The Square' with Claes Bang: 'Gobsmackingly weird' Cannes Film Festival favorite may have a tough time landing a Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award nomination. Ruben Östlund's comedy-drama is totally unrelated to Jehane Noujaim's 2013 Oscar-nominated political documentary of the same title, which refers to downtown Cairo's Tahrir Square. Cannes' Palme d'Or winner 'The Square' & other Official Competition favorites' Oscar chances Screenwriter-director Ruben Östlund's The Square was the Palme d'Or winner at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, which wrapped up on May 28. (See list of Palme d'Or and other 2017 Cannes winners further below.) Clocking in at about 2 hours and 20 minutes, Östlund's unusual comedy-drama revolving around the chaotic p.r. campaign to promote the opening of the titular installation – a symbolic square of light – at a contemporary art museum in Stockholm has been generally well-received by critics. In the opinion of The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw, »

Whenever the third film of a planned trilogy is nearing its release, it’s always a little bit nerve-wracking. Will this film live up to the first two films, or will it crash and burn, making the previous two films just a little bit worse in retrospect? We faced similar feelings going into Spider-Man 3, as well as The Dark Knight Rises, and Toy Story 3, and we left the theater with various levels of success.
We are approaching the release of War for the Planet of the Apes, and the stakes are pretty high. Going into the first film of this trilogy, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, no one was expecting much of anything. Tim Burton had already pissed away any good faith audiences had in the property with his early 2000s remake,, and many were wondering why the studio even bothered with it. But the director of the film, »

The early reactions to War for the Planet of the Apes are in, and the common refrain seems to be “hold on to your butts.” When 20th Century Fox rebooted the Planet of the Apes franchise in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, starring James Franco, audiences were understandably dubious. But director Rupert Wyatt’s take on the material was pleasantly surprising, with stunning visual effects work and a tremendous motion-capture performance by Andy Serkis. The sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, doubled down on what worked from the first movie and layered in … »

Rebooting an iconic franchise is usually a fool's errand, but against all odds, 20th Century Fox's reboot of the Planet Of The Apes franchise has been exemplary. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was a very welcome surprise and it's sequel, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, actually managed to outshine its predecessor.

When it comes to 20th Century Fox’s rebooted Planet of the Apes saga, Caesar is undoubtedly the glue that binds this most reputable franchise together. He’s the living embodiment of a radically advanced simian, but he’s also so much more – a leader, a revolutionary, a messiah figure. It’s an arc we’ve watched unfold since Andy Serkis’ frighteningly intelligent chimp first yelled “no!” during Rise of the Planet of the Apes six years ago.
Now, after bearing witness to the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, moviegoers are about to watch Caesar wage War For the Planet of the Apes, a valiant cause that puts our hero on a collision course with The Colonel. Woody Harrelson is on board to play the latter, a glowering skinhead with an unusual fascination with apekind – so much so, in fact, that he’s willing to stop at nothing to bring about their demise. »

Channing Tatum's Gambit movie has been drifting along at sea for quite some time now. It's already lost two directors over the last few years in the form of Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow), but producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner have often confirmed that they still want to press ahead with it.
In amongst the usual rumours of 'creative differences' and the like, Kinberg himself has mused that with a project like Gambit, there's no point doing half a job. The team seemingly want to do it right, or not at all. »

Only if we care can all be saved.
In our interview with screenwriters of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, now producers, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, about the use of real chimpanzees in the 2011 movie, Silver said, “it’s all about animal rights. Man’s hubris for testing on animals – they’re sentient beings! So using real animals goes against our theme.”
20th Century Fox has just released “Compassion” – a special video created in conjunction with the Jane Goodall Institute.
In honor of the upcoming release of War For The Planet Of The Apes, 20th Century Fox has partnered with the Jane Goodall Institute to provide care for rescued chimpanzees, many of whom are victims of the »

A new television spot for War for the Planet of the Apes shows that Caesar has been plotting his revenge since the aftermath of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Woody Harrelson's character, The Colonel, sparks the war, and this trailer shows that Caesar could be the one to stop it.

Variety is reporting that FilmNation is set to reimagine Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 classic The Kid as an animated sci-fi film, which is being directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Christian Volckman (Renaissance).
The as-yet-untitled film has been scripted by Boris Starling (Messiah), and is said to be “inspired by the characters and themes in The Kid“, although specific plot details are being kept under wraps.
“Animation gives (them) the unique opportunity to craft an original and moving story that explores technology and humanity, all told from the point of view of a boy and his robot,” said Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf of Big Beach.
“We’ve been waiting for a really exceptional project for FilmNation’s first animated feature. With a filmmaking team that is second to none, we are excited to help bring The Kid to a global audience,” added Glen Basner, »

I remember when Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was first coming out, and people (me included) were particularly dismissive of it. There was barely any promotion leading up to the release, and the only stars were James Franco and the guy who played Draco Malfoy. We'd also just gotten burned by that terrible Tim Burton/Marky Mark remake less than ten years prior, so I think it was fair to be skeptical. However,... Read More »
