Tron Legacy
Official announcement from The Internet ™: these videos of lots of special effects from across the ages are A Thing now. We had one from the Academy themselves and one that was heavy on the recent releases. And now comes a very even-handed one that, while including the genre-obligatory Epic Music, takes us all the way back to 1878, before there even really were movies: it's an Eadweard Muybridge zoopraxiscope shot you're seeing.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Apes will rule the Earth ... at least at the multiplex this summer when "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" arrives, picking up years after "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," with humanity now at the mercy of the super smart simians. A lot of work went into creating the realistic looking simians, that goes far beyond the tremendous amount of CGI.

Summer 2014 preview
The temperatures are rising, the coats are going into storage, and the TV spots are getting more prevalent. That's right, it's almost time for summer movie season again. The months of May through August are traditionally the biggest in the multiplex calendar, but the lines have become increasingly blurred in recent years—if "Noah" and "Divergent" didn't kick off blockbuster season, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" certainly did, and that was three weeks ago.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
There was a time when it was hard to imagine being excited for a “Planet of the Apes” movie. When “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” came out three years ago to rave reviews and became a box office success, surely nobody could have seen it coming. Now, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is just a few months away, and it’s pretty safe to say that it’s the most anticipated film in the franchise. Still, while buzz surrounding the film is definitely strong, not everyone is particularly thrilled about what will appear on screen.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
So, what can you expect from "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes"? We'll let director Matt Reeves explain. "We've got apes on horses," he told USA Today. "There is a sense in the beginning of the movie that apes have inherited the Earth. You see the species as it takes dominion over the planet. It's an ape-world. That's the fun of it."

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
There are two approaches to tentpole marketing. On one side, you have folks like Sony and Marvel, who like to give everyone everything so that before the movie even opens, you feel like you've seen it already. And on other side, carefully plotted campaigns give you just enough to get excited, but save the spectacle for the multiplex. We prefer the latter and hopefully Fox sticks with it for "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" (though their track records suggests otherwise).

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
We'll be the first to admit that prior to "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" we were basically expecting something along the lines of this. But Rupert Wyatt defied expectations, and the rather limp marketing campaign, and delivered one of the most satisfying summer movies in years. His effort was lean, smart and a riff on an existing franchise that felt fresh, without ever being too self-serious. In short, it was a success. But can Matt Reeves—who also worked the impossible with his excellent "Let Me In," a remake of the already solid "Let The Right One In"—pick up the ball and run with it? We're about to find out.
