The Rise of the Trailer of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

December 18, 2013

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was one of the more pleasant movie surprises we’ve had in recent years, a rehashed premise that sounded forgettable and bland when announced, yet had nuance and depth and verve when it hit the screen. And it succeeded in spite of James Franco’s presence — an actor who always has the bearing of a man who needs to have a cream pie thrown in his smug face. So now we get a sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Wouldn’t something dawn before it could rise? Don’t they have them backwards?), and the new Planet of the Apes movie series has officially become a franchise. And now we have a trailer. A Franco-less trailer.

Caesar’s apes are organized and in the woods, pioneers, if you will, of their kind, but there’s a notable dearth of coonskin caps. Hopefully the filmmakers can fix that deficiency in post.

    Yeah, well, I wonder if by now maybe God isn’t thinking the planet might be under better management if another branch of the primate tree had taken over. or maybe bears! “Geez, I bet on the wrong horse!”
    But not chimpanzees. That would just be a step sideways.
