I've been a fan of Planet of the Ape since I was a child in the 70's. It was the big thing between the original Star Trek on TV and just prior to Star Wars. Minus the PotA re-imagining back in 2001 (which stunk story wise) I was pleasantly surprised by Rise of the Planet of the Apes a couple of years ago, an I'm looking forward to seeing it's sequel next summer. Here's the first official trailer.
I wasn't even aware there was another PotA movie after the 2001 remake!! I didn't like 2001 remake that much either, but I'm not a Mark Wahlberg fan. I don't follow movies as much as I used to so, I see why I wasn't aware. I'll deferentially check out Rise of the Planet of the Apes and if it's as good as you say ... I will be anticipating the new one coming out as well.
