Planet of the Apes Is Coming!
Get ready to have to deal with those damn filthy apes once again! July 27, 2001 is the magic day of release of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, the updating of the classic 70's film series that held my adolescent psyche in check. It is shaping up to be a great movie and fans of Burton's previous films (Beetlejuice, Batman, Sleepy Hollow, Mars Attacks!, Ed Wood, et al) should not be disappointed. I'm a big fan of Tim Burton, so you know that I'll be first in line. Rumor has it that POTA original movie cast members Charlton Heston and Linda Harrison will both have cameos in Burton's version. And, word has it that Heston will appear as an ape! Check out the Planet of the Apes movie website (http://www.planetoftheapes.com/) to keep up-to-date on one of the biggest films of the summer of 2001.
