All tag results for planet of the apes
Way back in Jan 2010, we heard that Ashley Greene was set to star alongside Sebastian Stan in upcoming horror flick The Apparition.
Now, Harry Potter's Tom Felton has been attached to the heavily delayed project as well, and he's revealed some new deets about the ghost story flick:
- Tom describes the movie as a "psychological thriller" and "not a horror exactly"
- Tom plays "a supernatural expert" that the main couple seeks help from in the movie
Here's how the movie's plot is being described:
"A couple are haunted by a supernatural presence that is unleashed during a college experiment."
We're not TOO excited about this one, but we're def intrigued by that cast!

We guess they gave it a last-minute name change!
As we've reported, this one's an origin story as to how the now iconic monkeys came to be as smart as civilized as we've seen them in the original flicks, and we've got to say, this looks VERY well done!
The CGI alone is pretty epic! We're impressed!
Here's hoping that the story and acting is just as good! We wouldn't want this to bomb!
What do U think?? Will U go see Rise of the Planet of the Apes?
Ooh! Any excuse to have some seksi James Franco earlier than expected is fine by us!
The upcoming Planet of the Apes prequel/reboot, Rise of the Apes, has been given a few different release dates - originally scheduled for June 24th, before being pushed back to Thanksgiving weekend - but now, 20th Century Fox has once again bumped it up to an August 5th release, marking it as their "last big event movie of the summer!"
The story will allegedly focus on Franco's character in present-day San Francisco, as a scientist attempting to cure Alzheimer's who inadvertantly develops the intelligence in apes, that ultimately leads to the events of the other films!
Excellent! Sounds like it has a lot of promise!
We're definitely interested in checking it out!
What do U think?? Are U excited that Rise of the Apes is coming sooner than originally expected??
Onto the next fanchise, we see!
"It's called Rise of The Apes and it is a fantastic story and explanation of how the apes from Planet of the Apes came to power. It's definitely one of the best scripts I've ever read. The first question my friends asked was, 'Are you playing a human?' and when I said yes they were quite disappointed - because they wanted to see me as a monkey. We've got Andy Serkis, from Lord of The Rings, playing the lead ape all with motion capture. It's really pushing the boundaries of Avatar-style CGI, so it's gonna really set a new precedent I think. In the film my character's father owns a primate facility. Of course I'm not the kindest man to my residents and I torture them with a whole host of weapons."
Wow! All of the apes are going to be done in motion capture?!
That's a huge revelation!
This is going to change the entire look of the movie! Let's hope that they don't mess this up, though!
If this CGI isn't done right, this whole thing could be an absolute disaster!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Rise of the Apes??

And Freida Pinto!
James will be playing a well-meaning scientist searching for a cure for Alzheimer's by experimenting with apes. Through his work, along with the help of a primatologist played by Freida, one of the apes named Caesar evolves and begins to hatch a plan of world domination by his species.
Anyone else really hoping apes kick the shiz out of James? Someone really should!
Are U excited about this movie?

The film is set in San Francisco, where a genetic engineering experiment creates apes with astounding intelligence. This causes extreme conflict between the species. Franco will play a scientist who becomes an important figure in the war between humans and apes.
Rise is set for a June 24, 2011 release day and filming begins July 5th.
What's next, sir?!
