PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that this second trailer is a whole lot creepier than the first one was and had me startled a few times. I’m still on the fence about seeing it in the theater around the time that it opens since I’ll have a busy calendar around the end of March and well into April based on events and some other films that are higher on my own list to see. Let’s see what happens. What about you readers? Have you been sold on the film by this second trailer? Chime in down below in the comments section so we know that you are out there and seeing this stuff. Until we meet again.

In an effort to keep up with a little bit more from the Horror side of the fence for our “Film and Television” area, I’m thrilled and just a little bit scared to share the first full trailer from the new film “Pet Sematary”. This is a reworking of the now classic tale by Horror scribe Stephen King and you can watch it below. I’ve even added some premise, casting and one of the first posters revealed for the film.

Opening Today: “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” (8/5/2011)

“It’s time for a little monkey business my dear readers” and don’t tell me that you didn’t see that one coming from me. That being said, today is the day that “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” opens up in theaters near you. Check out the poster.

Poster - Rise of the Planet of the Apes - 2011

In reading the film’s Wiki Entry we find that “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is a 2011 American science fiction film directed by Rupert Wyatt and starring the cast listed below. It has been written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, it is 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the “Planet of the Apes” series and thereby serves as an origin story for a new series of films. Its premise is similar to the fourth film in the original series, “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes” (1972), but it is not a direct remake in that it does not fit into that series’ continuity. Considering its a reboot it is not connected to the film “Planet Of The Apes” which starred Mark Wahlberg and premiered in 2001. I guess that is a good thing since to me the only thing good in that film was the makeup by Rick Baker. Of course mine is only one opinion and I loved the original franchise. I pretty much grew up with these first films and remember my Grandmother being brave enough to sit through all five in one sitting at a movie house in Greenpoint. Thanks again Nan 🙂 – To the best of my knowledge the television series was something I also enjoyed and I had all of the Mego action figures of the time. Sadly I no longer have these figures and they are worth a few bucks so that kind of stinks.

What are your thoughts on there being a reboot of the now decade old revisit to this franchise? Are you excited? Do you care? Will you see it? Let me know in the comments but please try to stray away from any spoilers unless announcing that there is spoilers in your submission. I don’t want anyone’s fun ruined after all.
