It’s been a good 10 years since Tim Burton grabbed the world by the scruff and drove it face-first into a steaming pile of monkey spunk that was his remake of the classic Planet of the Apes. Some have forgiven the dreary director, but I for one have not. Sure, his rendition was closer to the story the original that Apes was based off of. That doesn’t give him the right to do what he did. The stink of Paul Giamatti will never go away, despite the hours of vigorous scrubbing.
Twentieth Century Fox has decided to redeem itself. They’re taking us on a whole new flea-riddled adventure (prequel style) with Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The maniacs over at Dread Central were able to score a rather epic trailer for our viewing pleasure. For now, the best we can give you is a little ball-tickling shot of what Andy “Gollum” Serkis’ “Caesar” will look like.
You can bet your ass that master Serkis spent most of his time rocking his favorite onesie.
