Well I don't and since I'm the only other person who posts in this thread I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Well I live in hope!

And expect that as this new film is released, this thread will get much more popular!

Did the server just go down for 1/2 hour?

Even if it is just you and me, here are some websites:

http://upcomingmovies.com/planetoftheapes.html
(lots on the 2001 film's early development)

http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Hollow/3774

http://www.simiancentral.com/

http://www.spleenworld.com/apes/
(only an index page, rest of the site seems to be dead.)

You should try and see the TV series, I used to watch it every week when it was first aired in the 70's. It has been on the European SciFi Channel last year. It must be on some channel where you are.

Hi Asmiley and Dave, think I have seen a UK release date for Planet of The Apes in July. I could be wrong. Will try and find out.

Hi there.

I can just about remember the original series.
I thought the idea of a remake was quite good and the clips I've seen look very good.
Favourite character ummmmmm is it Galen? (no idea) if it is thought he was quite good.
I preferred the original film (first one) not the return of the apes.

Galen was the Roddy McDowall Chimpanzee character in the TV series, I expect that everyone would name him as their favourite. I think that his character in the films had a different name, Cornelius.

Did you know that the Gorilla character in the TV series was played by Mark Lenard (Sarek in 'Star Trek')?

Where have you seen film clips? I have only seen still photographs, and those were from the internet.

From the website for Planet of The Apes.

Talking to my hubby he said the guy who played the nasty ape used to scare him (when he was younger) not now.

Will try and find the addy for POTA. Release date for here is August I believe.

Is that this site:
http://www.planetoftheapes.com/

I found it a few weeks ago, but there was nothing there, now there is a short clip, but it takes forever to load.

It says that it is a "SKIP MOVIE"-- she gets everywhere doesn't she?

Thanks for the release date for the UK.:star:

Thats the one. I know what you mean. It does take forever and a day to load. Glad I'm not the only one to think so.

My hubby can't wait for the release of this film.

Cos hubby hasn't got the time or the patience to sit down and post. Plus we'd be fighting over the keyboard. (haha)
