If you're saying that the original nailed it, so the remake wasn't necessary (as was the case with the first installment of this series, the "Bad News Bears," and "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory"), I can't agree with you. "Planet of the Apes" with Charlie Heston was pretty close to perfect. Tim Burton ruins everything he gets his fat ugly hands on. That being said, the original "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" was so bad that even Roddy McDowell & Ricardo Monteblan couldn't hide their embarrassment completely.
I'm looking forward to this one.
Conquest was AWFUL but still, it looks better than this one they have coming. That CGI is ridiculous.
Don't forget ‘Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)’ where James Gregory as General Ursus says “The Only good human is a dead human”. In the BEHIND THE PLANET OF THE APES documentary Heston said he only agreed to be in that dumb sequel because the script said he would get to blow up the Earth at the end and then his character Taylor couldn't be brought back again for an even dumber movie. But Heston didn't know that Hollywood had long discovered Time Travel, remember 1960s Time Tunnel and The Time Machine??
Can an Ape become president?
