It seems that Tim Burton’s 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes can’t escape the spotlight today. Screen Junkies have released their Honest Trailer for the film.
They poke fun at basically everything about the film, from Mark Wahlberg’s halfhearted performance, to the creepy human-ape romance, and the attempt to one-up the original film’s ending.
Of course, the most fun probably comes during the “apes going ape$#!*” montage that comes towards the end.
Planet of the Apes did well at the box office, but was not well received by fans. Burton wasn’t interested in returning to the franchise, and so the reboot was shelved. The Planet of the Apes series was re-rebooted in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the follow-up, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, hits theaters July 11.
