And it will be called; Day of the Planet of the Apes.

The fourth will be called; Twlight of the Planet of the Apes.

Then it will be Darkness of the Planet of the Apes.

Wouldn't a third film pretty much have to be a remake of the original POTA film? Seems kind of inevitable.

I was saying the same thing on another forum. I don't know if it will be the third film but if they keep going you would think they would eventually have to remake the original.

Part of me would love to see that but then on the other hand the 68 original is such a sci-fi classic part of me wishes they would leave it alone.

Although, it's interesting in that the original war between apes and humans - which led to the original film as we saw it - apparently did not happen until the 25th or 26th centuries. So perhaps things could go differently this time around.

Also it wouldn't have to be a complete remake. There will be no astronaut going to the future unknowingly. Unless he goes to the future instead of going back in time and stopping the virus.

Even with Easter Eggs like the Icarus, I don't think we should assume that the new movies are literally prequels to the earlier cycle of films, including the original 1968 film.

This is a reboot, with its own continuity and timeline, so they aren't obliged to have Taylor run into Dr. Zaius umpteen centuries from now.

I was pretty meh about Rise. It was a distinct improvement over Tim's effort, but neither touched the epic wow-factor of the original '68 version.

In fairness, that's a high bar that doesn't have to be met, in order for this new series to be successful.

Planet of the Apes into Darkness?

Night of the Living Planet of the Apes?

In many ways it would have to be different. One of the aspects of the original was Taylor (and the audience) not knowing he was really back home on Earth. Since they can't repeat that part of the story it does give them creative room to do something new.

Why can't they repeat it?

I mean, obviously none of us can know exactly what happens in Dawn, but I'm just guessing that there'll still be room for a full-out nuclear conflict (which is what happened in the original).

And even if it's not nuclear: There will be *some* kind of final conflict, we know that much. That's the whole point of all Apes films: to establish a world where apes rule and humans are slaves. We don't know how Dawn will get there, but it's pretty safe to assume it will. It'll do something to humans to make them unable to speak and act like anything other than animals. (I mean, come on, why else use the phrase "Planet of the APES"? ) And thus lead to a reboot of POTA.

I would love to see a POTA remake where the apes rule and humans are mutant slaves and cattle. I just don't think the plot element of the astronauts from the Icarus not knowing they have arrived back on earth would work. I don't want to rule it out but I think the film makers might want to add something new. Not sure what that would be though.
