Caesar und sein Streben nach einer friedlichen Affengesellschaft sind zurück und nach dem emotional ergreifenden ersten Teil Planet der Affen: Prevolution wird dem Zuschauer statt dem Coming of Age Film nun ein politischer Thriller mit Affen präsentiert. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) übernimmt den Regiestuhl von Rupert Wyatt, doch gelingt es ihm mit dieser schwierigen Prämisse eine gute Fortsetzung zu schaffen?

In 2011 20th Century Fox managed a feat few thought possible: they rebooted the Planet of the Apes Franchise with a prequel that stood on its own avoiding typical prequel pitfalls. Directed by Rupert Wyatt Rise of the Planet of the Apes allowed for a whole new generation to be drawn into a now eight movie franchise which has had its origins in the book La Planète des Singes (1963) by Pierre Boule.

3 years later a new director – Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) – is giving us a sequel focusing on the chimpanzee Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his group of hyper-intelligent apes who are trying to build themselves a homestead 10 years after a deadly virus has wiped out most of humanity. But when a group of humans stumbles into Caesar’s territory the conflict is imminent.

The Adventures of Tintin is an animated adaption of the popular Belgium comic series of the same name. Directed by Stephen Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson this movie has been on many people’s watchlists. The question was if it would pay off or if this motion capture movie would be a multimillion dollar one-way-trip.
