First PromoArt from CAESAR: RISE OF THE APES?!?!?

Hey folks, Harry here with a cool little something for a film I think we're looking curiously at. This is a "Thank You card" from the Art Department of CAESAR: RISE OF THE APES - the new Apes project from Fox. Just one of the myriad of fun promo items that different departments make... On KILL BILL - every department had their own T-shirts with their own unique designs, that they paid for out of pocket - because it was so cheap in China to do that. I love this sort of art work - and love pics of these sorts of things - they are... VERY COOL. Take a look!

    No bullshit swirly spirals or clowny gothic Tim Burton crap, let it have teeth, and be happy to reference it's roots. The originals were classic, TOP THEM!!

    by Sigourneys_Beaver

    The rest were crap. it'll always be open to ridicule. You just can't make a credible apes film. Humans ruin it.

    The original Caesar

    by Rommel Catuncan

    was an interesting character, played well by McDowall. The movie was pretty straightforward and maybe they can do something new with it. I don't want to get my hopes up too much after the 2001 Burton version.

    Why can't they just call this Rise of the Planet of the Apes

    by IndyCollector

    To be consistent with the titles of the other movies?

    I'm glad they're calling it CAESAR.

    by blackwood

    Just RISE OF THE APES seemed limp.<p>I rewatched Burton's APES. It's not that bad. Tim Roth is incredible. So are the effects. Burton went his way with it, and there are some bright spots. It feels 'interfered with', like it wasn't allowed to be as weird as it wanted to.

    Is Roddy McDowell alive?

    by Nautilus_nrm1

    Give him at least a cameo in the flick.

    Crap, McDowell's passed.

    So much for that theory! :(

    re: I'm glad they're calling it CAESAR.

    by Nautilus_nrm1

    Yeah, I'm also of the opinion that Burton's PotA was, on par, a decent movie. A timely sequel to follow up on that crazy ending would have been nice. Burton is a brilliant director when the studio lets him have his vision.

    I hope this is a full on Apes movie, replete with apocalyptic ending and much monkey madness.

    The tally-marks that have been added among the scribbled signatures at the bottom, are a possible plot spoiler. Is this one of the things that Caesar starts to do on the wall of his enclosure?

    Planet of apes movies we do not need

    Blacks are on equality. It ain't the 60s anymore. And the original early movies were about US racial apartheid. It's over. Make The Hobbit the right way and make the world a good place

    Burton's Apes

    by Rommel Catuncan

    I enjoyed the movie in parts, great makeup and effects, but rewatching some of it again, it is a strange mix of big summer blockbuster trying really hard to be wacky and comedic. <p> The main problem with the originals is that you do notice that the budget gets smaller with each sequel.

    That's the name on the... whatever it is. And a very regular, very boring chimpanzee. So will they try to tie this crap to the real Ape movies, or to that Burton trash (which, for some reason, didn't have Depp in drag, in spite of being directed by Burton...)?

    It seems in Hollywood, there is only one type of title, and that involves using the wrods "Rise of".
