‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes,’ the new ‘Apes’ prequel/reboot from 20th Century released a trailer today. The film takes place in the present day, and shows how animal testing leads to the….you guessed it…Rise of the Apes.
I’m not sure how to feel about this film. I’ve never been a huge fan of the series, and I found Burton’s “reimaginging” absolutely abysmal. I saw director Rupert Wyatt’s film ‘The Escapist‘ at the Independent Film Festival of Boston last year, and really enjoyed it. This film however…well, I’ll just have to wait and see.
