    Y’see, this is how you remake a franchise.
    Not by usurping the original’s look and feel by tarting it up in modernity.
    (Y’know what movie I’m talking about)
    You start from scratch and roll with its awesome concept.

    Even Taylor would have to grumble some level of approbration.

  2. Oh yes!!!

    The 1:08 mark where they are climbing over the dome…goosebumps…this looks incredible. I wonder though if perhaps at the end we shall hear Caesar utter something? :)

  3. Nah, I personally think it’s out of context. I mean…no matter what it’s creepy, but I don’t think Caesar is just going to start murdering people in there sleep. :)

    I think that’s Franco in the bedroom scene, so there’s probably more to it than the average stalker scenario.
    But I’ll bet those who put the trailer together were going for well-worn ideas, as if to sell this as a horror-thriller.

    Hopefully the movie will be smarter than that, and people will respond favorably to a story of conquest not based on violence.
