Summer is just around the corner, which means that we're edging that much closer to seeing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in theaters.

In the lead-up to the film’s trailer premiere on Wednesday, December 18th, Fox has released four new teaser posters for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which, despite the goofily-long title, we’re pretty excited for, as the equally verbose Rise of the Planet of the Apes as surprisingly great.

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Following the surprise of success of the Planet of the Apes loose prequel/ semi-reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, it was only natural that we’d be getting a sequel/ another sort-of prequel to the franchise.  Hence, another mouthful title: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  And now, Fox has provided the world with a plot summery (hint: it...

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Rise of the Planet of the Apes, despite being the sixth entry in the exhausted Planet of the Apes series (seventh if you count Tim Burton’s cross-eyed remake), and starring James Franco (who seems to be on a sub-‘Joaquin Phoenix in I’m Still Here’ journey to turn everything he does into annoying performance...

Earlier this summer, we reported to you that Rise of the Planet of Apes writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver had been hired to pen the script for the long-developing Jurassic Park 4 (the last film in the series, Jurassic Park III, was released 11 years ago, in 2001).  It was an interesting development for two...

The Best And Worst Reboots In Cinema

Best And Worst Reboots
There's a thin line between remakes and reboots. And sometimes, in this business, we makes the mistake of using them as synonyms for each other. But there's a big difference between the two, the main one being that there actually aren't very many movie reboots out there... yet. Remakes there's a ton. Movie reboots on the other hand, aren't as popularized. But that's going to change in...

'Jurassic Park 4' To Be Penned By 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Writers

Published by

After spending over a decade toiling in the near-extinction of development hell, it looks like Jurassic Park 4: The Unnecessary Sequel is finally going to happen, if only because it’s still a little too early to remake the first film but Universal still needs to wring some money from the property.  Thus, a decade-late sequel to a franchise that was never that great in the first...

Box Office Predictions: Audiences to get Infected by Contagion

Jude Law in Contagion
After a couple of weeks of super weak titles, Contagion is the first A-lister vehicle in quite some time. You'd think summer would be loaded with them, but you can't really call The Help or Rise of the Planet of the Apes star vehicles. Then again, look at the business Larry Crowne did. That...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
Summer officially ends this weekend as Labor Day signals that kids are going back to school, and that temperatures will begin dropping. This was a big summer for movies, with Harry Potter 7.2, Transformers 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 4 making more than a billion dollars worldwide. Much of the big money titles were...

Box Office Predictions: It's a Fright Night for New Releases

Published by

Jessica Alba in Spy Kids 4
It's the dog days of summer. This weekend four movies are coming out and - realistically - only one has a shot at taking the top slot. Last weekend saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes hold well enough to fend off The Help, but this weekend it's more than likely that The Help will take the top slot. Conan...

Weekend Box Office: Apes Hangs On To No. 1 Spot

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Rise of the Planet of the Apes isn't giving up easily. The sci-fi thriller clung to the No. 1 spot for a second weekend leaving behind new films like The Help, Final Destination 5 and 30 Minutes of Less. The Tate Taylor 60's Southern film fell a few million short from Apes, and came...

How do the U.K. Riots Hurt Cinema?

Published by

UK Riots
For the past couple days the lead stories have been America's market downturn, and the rioting and looting that has been happening in London. Like many more recent national tragedies, the footage recalls the films that try to recreate similar circumstances, and while many celebrities have tweeted about being safe, and concerned for what's been going on, it's hard to say how this is going to...

Weekend Box Office: Planet of the Apes Climbs To The Top

Published by

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
It was a fairly good weekend, for the Apes though everything came in lower than we predicted. The prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which got surprisingly good reviews (even though it didn't deserve them) made it through its opening weekend, grossing $54 million. James Franco and company stayed way ahead of all other movies including Universal's new release...

Review Roundup: 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes'

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Curious as to whether or not you should plunk down your hard-earned dollars on a movie about James Franco dealing with some peskily sentient and maybe sorta kinda revolutionary apes that might just one day really piss off Charlton Heston?  Well, if so, dig our round up of what the critics thought of Rise of the Planet of the Apes below—we’ve laid out a...

Rise of the Apes Franco Close Up
This weekend James Franco and Andy Serkis hope to defeat Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds for the top slot at the box office. If Bateman and Reynolds look familiar it's because they've both top-lined movies earlier this summer. And they star in The Change Up with Olivia Wilde, who just appeared in Cowboys and Aliens....

New Rise of the Planet of the Apes Teaser Sells the Movie

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
One of the most exciting-looking movies of the summer is Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Though 20th Century Fox hasn't always treated the franchise with respect - either in the original run or in it's re-imagined Tim Burton fiasco - but the story is durable because man's relationship to nature and meddling scientists are an evergreen subject. Now there's a new teaser...
