Trailer: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

‘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.

  1. Does anyone know if this is a reboot of the series or is it supposed to be part of the canon? Is it a prequel or a reboot? I’m getting the impression it’s a reboot (especially after this trailer, which appears to completely ignore how the apes actually rose in the original series), but I still haven’t heard anything definitive.

  2. It seems to me that it is a complete reboot, but you’re right they haven’t really addressed this in the marketing.
