    Christopher Nolan Tops Warner Bros. Wishlist For 'The Twilight Zone'

    Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron & Rupert Wyatt Also In The MixSo yeah, we sort of forgot about this one, but Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot of "The Twilight Zone" off the ground for a while now. Way back in 2008 Rand Ravich ("The Astronaut's Wife") was hired to write the script, and then l...

    Review: 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Monkeys Around, Showcases Action Over Nuance

    When blockbuster films deal with conflict that poses a global threat, the question hangs over them: why is humanity worth saving? It’s the drug-film conundrum: 95 minutes of injections and hard-living make a stronger impression than the therapy and lessons of the remaining 10. Why bother presenting ...

    Monkey Vs. Horse: Spoilerific Comic-Con Clip For 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Picks Up The Pace

    We're still on something of a knife-edge about "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," two weeks away from the film's release: talented director Rupert Wyatt and performance capture star Andy Serkis have talked a good talk so far, and elements of it have been intriguing, but the trailers for the most part...

    Andy Serkis And 'Apes' Director Rupert Wyatt Want To Make Performance-Capture Take On 'Animal Farm'

    We're about a month from release, and "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is still perhaps the biggest question mark of the summer. It's got a high-caliber cast, led by freshly-minted Oscar nominee James Franco and performance capture pioneer Andy Serkis as lead ape Caesar, a promising director, in Rupert Wyatt, who debuted with the little-seen-but-superb "The Escapist," and a script more effective than most tentpole flicks. But at the same time, we haven't really been feeling the trailers to date (the last was the best of them), the "Deep Blue Sea"-esque premise could risk looking silly, and the shunting of release dates (summer, then November,...

    Indecisive Ape Spotlighted In Riveting New Photo From 'Rise Of The Planet of The Apes'

    And that indecisive ape would be Caesar, as performance-captured by Andy Serkis, in this brand new shot from "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes." Caesar appears to be having a hard time deciding whether he wants his beverage to taste great, or to be less filling. He could just ask a human but - oh, cra...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Has Distinct Whiff Of 'The Happening'

    The value of a home-grown franchise for a big studio can't be undervalued, and since they adapted Pierre Boule's novel "La planète des singes" into 1968's "Planet of the Apes," it's become one of 20th Century Fox's key properties, spawning five additional movies, and two separate TV series. But the monkey-heaviest sci-fi series around isn't what it once was, and 2001's Tim Burton 're-imagining' failed to successfully re-launch the franchise, due to being really, really terrible. But you can't keep a good merchandising opportunity down, and the studio have gone back to the well, with the talents of Andy Serkis, James Franco and effects geniuse...
