I'm not that interested in the movie but what I do find interesting is the cast like Jon Lithgow and Tom Felton :think:

Uhm this is an awkward idea. Of all things I never imagined they'd decide to make a prequel to this franchise.

I thought Franco was the ape and Serkis was the human. Then whose Tom Felton? Ape or man? :crazy:

How come there aren't any movies with FRIENDLY smart evolved humanoid creatures (not aliens)? Always going with the war aspect. D:

I think smart apes and humans would get along quite swimmingly, aside from the crazy Creationists. :ugeek:

But I guess that's not dramatic enough. :JGLface:

because its competition of species...their nature, as our nature, would cause them to feel threatened and in order to survive they would have to resort to violent means
