We have booked this film on its release out here on the 3rd August and of late have been running the various trailers that we have been sent. I must admit I was not that taken with the last Apes film but if the latest trailer is anything to go by it does look good.
I understand that Peter Jackson's Weta workshop has done the special effects along with Andy Serkis doing the motion-capture stuff of Caesar, also in the trailer was John Lithgow always a good actor.
Never a great fan of sequel this latest "Planet of the Apes" might be the exception'

I'm sure it will be a gorilla of a hit, and considering the masters of SFX Weta are doing the CGI, it will be a eye-ball feast, I liked the Tim Burton remake, but it did lack the thrill of the older movies, but we will have to see what the new one will be like.............

Yes the film looks good with an interesting cast but....I loved the orginal films, hated Burtons reimaging but admired fully the mechanical prosthesis make up of Rick Baker which was oscar winningly stuning, as such I feel the CGI motion capture on the new film will have what all CGI manages a stark coldness of clarity without tangible warmth. In other words give me real over artificial. CGI be damned.
