dawn of the planet ofthe apes poster1. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Fox, 3,967 Theaters, 130 Minutes, Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and brief strong language): So, after throwing a whole bunch of money at Tim Burton in an attempt to revitalize this franchise, it looks like the third time was the charm. Who would have thought starting before the first film would be a better idea that just remaking it.

This time around, there is no James Franco and Rupert Wyatt, but, then again, the first set of filmsĀ  didn’t really have all that much star power after Charlton Heston left and it ran for several more films.

This time around, a group of human survivors come across a the ape’s encampment, and what could be a new found peace between the two species turns sour with sabotage on both sides. Will man and ape learn to live together, or does this mean war?

William Gatevackes, gonna read it now. How cool that you’re a critic. Didn’t know. (But we’re all critics, aren’t we?)
