With critics mostly fawning in early reviews for the upcoming "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes," the sequel to potent franchise re-starter "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," it might be worth remembering that there was a time when Fox had previously tried to relaunch their property.

Planet Of The Apes

With critics mostly fawning in early reviews for the upcoming "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes," the sequel to potent franchise re-starter "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes," it might be worth remembering that there was a time when Fox had previously tried to relaunch their property. And the results weren't pretty.

Back in 2001, Tim Burton tackled "Planet Of The Apes" and enlisted Mark Wahlberg as the lead, and it was a mess. As Screen Junkies remind us in their latest Honest Trailer, the movie was a weird reinvention, borrowing and nodding to the Charlton Heston film, but changing the ending to something confounding. Basically, calling this the "$100 million dollar version of 'Mark Wahlberg Talks To Animals' " is completely on point. Watch below, and if you're too young to remember that "Saturday Night Live" reference, we've included the full skit for you too.
