Planet of the Apes maniacs, rejoice

I saw the original Planet of the Apes movies about a billion times.  I watched the TV show religiously.  I own all sorts of Apes swag, including original Planet of the Apes bubblegum cards in super-duper mint condition.

The update featuring Canadian Estella Warren (now in a spot of trouble) wasn’t all that great.  So that’s why I, and my fellow Ape-aholoics, are totally stoked by this trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Fortunately, the world will now end only after it comes out. Good thing.

    Original POA movie with Charleton Heston, Kim Hunter, Roddy McDowell, Maurice Evans and James Gregory — Pure Movie Gold. Too many great lines and scenes to repeat here.

    Interesting that Charleton Heston went from the pure Hollywood A list to acting in a bunch of classic sci-fi movies, like POA, Omega Man, Soylent Green, etc. (of course, he also played a Mexican in Evil Under the Sun, which was laughably weird). Then closes out his life being a NRA wingnut. Odd.

      “Get your stinkin’ paws off me, you damn dirty ape!”…..somehow I dont think we’ll hear classic lines like that in the new movie….

      Saw the original when I was a young lad…..scared the hell out of me….
