The official web site for the new “Planet of the Apes” film opened just hours ago and it’s nifty. Besides being able to sign up to get updates (yawn) there is actually video you can download on the site. While the trailer won’t debut officially until noon on February 28th, there’s a short interview with Tim Burton. In this quick interview, Burton describes the movie as “not a sequel, not a remake, but a re-imagining of the original.” He admits being a fan of the 1968 original with Charlton Heston and shares many fan’s obsession with the dark, intelligent sci-fi classic. Burton then goes on to describe the world “turned upside down” that the new characters will encounter. During the interview we are shown some of the behind-the-scenes. We’re treated to apes on horses and a colossal set featuring a crashed spaceship. We could go on and on describing this to you, but you should really check it out for yourself. Visit the Official Planet of the Apes site and travel to ape city to see the Burton interview, pictures, the trailer and more.
