With the Planet of the Apes franchise due to get a “reboot” later this year with the release of Rise of Planet of the Apes I thought it would be interesting to look at the trailer of both the 1968 version and the 2001 version.
The 1968 version starred Charlton Heston and went on to win an award from the Academy, though only got nominations for actual Oscars.
The 2001 version was directed by Tim Burton and starred Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, Helena Bonham Carter and Kris Kristofferson. It won several awards for makeup and special effects
So will the 2011 “reboot” spawn a full series of films, or will it just be a “one off” like the Tim Burton one?
