Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The trailer for the reboot movie of Rise of the Planet of the Apes has hit the intertubes – and there’s some serious monkey business going on. I quite like the idea that the apes’ IQ boost came as an unexpected byproduct of genetic engineered medical testing for Alzheimers-like diseases… a clever detail.

Let the revolt come about.


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    First thought is, oh no… Take ya stinking paws off me Planet of the Apes, ya damned dirty Hollywood!

    But then I saw the trailer — and that is one creepily brilliant effort. Given that the purpose of a two minute trailer is to get one to want to see the damn two hour movie, then mission accomplished.
