Rise of the Apes Has a New Title
Apparently marketing studies found the best response has been to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which absolutely makes it sound like part of the original cycle of five films.
20th Century Fox will be releasing the prequel/reboot to the Planet of the Apes franchise this August. The film has alternated in title between Caesar, Caesar: Rise of the Apes and just Rise of the Apes. Now there's a slight alteration to the title that would tie it closer to the original film series.
Rise of POTA stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Andy Serkis and Brian Cox. It's directed by Rupert Wyatt, and offers a look at apes ascension to power in quite a different way from the original, involving genetic experimentation.
Take a look at this trailer for the original film series that was produced for the films' THX remastering on VHS many moons ago.
