Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Okay, so how did we manage to forget to have this on our schedule?!

It’s top of the UK Box Office now, having topped the ratings in the US & Canada for the past two weeks.

What’s more, it’s also got pretty good ratings (IMDb and RT), as well as many favourable reviews from reputable sources:

*]Total Film
*] The Telegraph
*] Sound on Sight

One for the first couple of weeks of Spring Term?!

I am trying to figure out the answer to that question… But where to put it?

Strangely it didn’t seem to get any publicity at all until quite close to its release which I guess is why we missed it.

Never mind, there are far more embarrassing films that we’ve forgotten (Mamma Mia, Return of the King…). It should make a good opening double for Spring though.

We’ll be able to show Project Nim (from the director of Man on Wire) as a companion piece in the spring term.
