New Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer!

My sons and I saw Super 8 on the weekend (me twice), and the best part of both screenings was this – the new Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer! Woot!

As a boy my sons’ ages in Texas, I told them, I saw the very first Planet of the Apes movie, and have been cheering for the ape side ever since. Moreover, in the intervening decades, and without warning, I will regularly quote key lines from Ape movies. (Best ever found here: “God damn you all to Hell!”)

Anyway, here’s the newest trailer for Rise. I’ll be camped out on the sidewalk on day one, quoting Charleton Heston to passerby.

    Saw the same at Super 8 as well last weekend. Looks quite promising. Of countless memorable quotes from POTA, this one stands alone: “Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death”

    Awesome! Apes sure have come a long way in film from the days when the Wizard of Oz flying monkeys scared the crap out of me, to the Lost in Space chimp or Elly-May’s chimp on Beverly Hillbillies and now the apes fight back and give humans a taste of their own medicine – excellent!

    In no time, some of those chimps will be candidates for the NDP in Quebec.

    What no Marky Mark in this one? Wasn’t Heston in all of the originals?

    “Get your hands off me, you damn dirty ape” – my favorite line. Personally, I think the Simpsons had a great idea years ago with the Planet of the Apes musical entitled “Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want To Get Off”. Also can’t wait for Cowboys and Aliens. I was never great in math, but IMO cowboys + aliens = awesome.
