    I mean, there's bound to be one, right?

    What would you like to see?

    Or should they give this particular franchise a good rest?

    I think, if they do another trilogy to follow the RISE-DAWN-WAR one, that a fresh approach is needed.

    Enough with the excessive gloom?

    Maybe even a film that starts very lighthearted for the first half and only then turns into a tragedy?

    It worked for ESCAPE.

    Or, to blow everybody's mind, a direct sequel to Tim Burton's 2001 masterpiece. :emoji_confused:

    And puh-leeese! No tv series prequels or any of that nonsense about anything to do with Ape-dom!

    Not every franchise needs expanding! :emoji_alien:

    Has anyone ever read the book written by Drew Gaska where it follows what happened to Landon in the original film? I can't remember what it was called but it sounded interesting to say the least!

    I saw the second film of the trilogy and it was okay but I'm a purist and love the original five films! This last one bombed at the office box is that right?

    I haven't read it - and have never heard of it until you just mentioned it, JB - but it does indeed sound interesting.....

    CONSPIRACY OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

    • Archaia's first illustrated novel! Set during the classic 1968 Planet of the Apes film, Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes tells the story of what happened between the scenes and centers on the astronaut John Landon, Gorilla police chief Marcus, and Chimpanzee scientist Dr. Milo.

    It seemed that the good reviews helped it do "okay", enough to warrant yet another film.....



    As yet though, no confirmation of that fourth film.

    Maybe they are giving the franchise a rest after all.

    But the APES will surely return in some form, and probably sooner rather than later? :emoji_confused:
