After watching the trailer for the new planet of the apes I have hope. They promise a movie with improvements which is the main point of doing a remake.
What made the old planet of the apes so great was the social message in it. From what I can see is that they will continue with asking those questions of quality of life, equal treatment and second class citizenry. The original Planet of the Apes are a Sci-Fi must see for the story and social messages. Even if the effects and look are a little cheesy by today standards they did an incredible job with the very restricted budget they had to work with.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters August 5th.
