As soon as “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” was released 5 years ago, we knew it was going to be a nice, fresh start for one of the most popular and talked about sci-fi series of modern cinema.
The new franchise is full of interesting Easter eggs and callbacks to the original movies and the fans are loving it very much.
But what about producer Dylan Clark? Is he as well delighted with all these “hidden” references?
It Wasn’t My Taste
On the set of the third installment called “War for the Planet of the Apes”, Clark talked about their referencing of the original movies and had this to say:
“The first one we did some Easter eggs, we shot the Icarus up. It wasn’t my taste but we even used some dialogue from the original, there were some fights about that one. There are certain characters and certain things that you will see in this movie too, so again we pay some homage, some of it is just cool for the mythology”.
The producer also explained that they are never forcing these Easter eggs, while he also said that he’s not the fan of all original Planet of the Apes films.
“We’re never sitting in our story meetings going ‘How do we link up to what they did in Beneath the Planet of the Apes?’ or ‘God, they did that in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. Can we do a version of it better?’ Never. We love those movies, well most of those movies. Some of them are not so good. We revere them, they were a great five run, but they’re over here.”
The latest movie form Planet of the Apes reboot series is hitting American theaters on July 14, 2017. Stick around for more updates.
