Just a few notes from the last couple days.
1. The newly-restored cut of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) came out on Blu-Ray this week, so what better time to start spreading rumours of a possible remake, reportedly called Genesis: Apes. — The Screengrab (x2), CHUD.com
2. The official website for Tres días, AKA Before the Fall, now has a trailer. The film looks sort of like a cross between Deep Impact and Last Night (my review), both of which came out in 1998 — has it been ten years already? — but its basic premise — an impending global catastrophe wrought by an incoming meteor — goes at least as far back as Abel Gance’s La fin du monde (1931). — Before the Fall3. Comics writer Grant Morrison may be involved with the in-development big-screen version of The Flash, but he says he can’t talk about it. — MTV Splash Page
4. Jerry Bruckheimer met some online reporters on the set of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and talked about the current states of Pirates of the Caribbean 4, National Treasure 3, The Lone Ranger and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. — Cinematical, ComingSoon.net
