A few weeks ago when I was chatting with one of our moderators on the forum about the upcoming remake of the Planet of the Apes.  She hipped me a really short clip and my eyes rolled.  I really was not in the mood for another Planet of the Apes movies.  The last remake was a great Saturday afternoon-with-nothing-to-do movie and I didn’t think they could salvage that franchise.

Fast forward to a few days ago, she sent me a link to the full length trailer.  After seeing this I have to be a big girl and admit that it may not be as bad as I thought.  Indeed the apes look a whole lot better the ones we were used to and the storyline looks like it can shape up into something pretty good.  Instead of picking up from where the series left off, they pulling an X-Men and making it a an origin story.

Take a look and let me know what you think in comments!
