This week the newest of the new blockbusters is also the oldest. Slipping into theaters surrounded by remarkably positive buzz, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes continues the freshly rebooted franchise in an action packed summer movie spectacle laced with social commentary. It’s the seventh film in a franchise that also included two TV series. Granted, the bulk of the Apes movies came out in the 1970s with almost a 30-year gap before the unfortunate Tim Burton reboot. The fact that there’s still brand name recognition for a series that kicked off way back in 1968 is a sign of just how special this franchise truly is.
