A big thanks to Yahoo! Movies for the new trailer, August 5th cannot get here quick enough! I love the scene where Caesar is ‘building’ his army…
…at the 1:50 mark…did an Ape just throw an axe or a parking meter?! Either way that is so awesome!! I believe that 20th Century Fox has a hit on their hands if the movie can deliver what the trailer is promising. Considering that Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, which this new film is certainly loosely based on, is possibly my favorite of the franchise, it should mean a lot when I say that what I am seeing here is making me quite happy.
A big thanks to heathencomics or as he is better known, Gabriel Hardman, for the awesome Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (My favorite of the Planet of the Apes series!) illustration you see below from his deviantART page. Hardman is well known to Marvel Comics fans for his work on Agents of Atlas along with fellow artist Leonard Kirk, and writer Jeff Parker, and I really cannot implore you enough to search out the trades for this series if you are a fan of this site!
Caesar: “Where there is fire, there is smoke. And in that smoke, from this day forward, my people will crouch, and conspire, and plot, and plan for the inevitable day of Man’s downfall. The day when he finally and self-destructively turns his weapons against his own kind. The day of the writing in the sky, when your cities lie buried under radioactive rubble! When the sea is a dead sea, and the land is a wasteland out of which I will lead my people from their captivity! And we will build our own cities, in which there will be no place for humans except to serve our ends! And we shall found our own armies, our own religion, our own dynasty! And that day is upon you NOW!”
