02 The Planet of the Apes - Part II: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Oct 04, 2017, 05:00 PM

Part II of our PLANET OF THE APES series!

Spurred by this year’s release of WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, we kick off Kinotes in a big way with an epic three-episode series on THE PLANET OF THE APES. Part I will tackle the original PLANET OF THE APES, Part II: RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, and Part III: DAWN & WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES.

In this episode, Part II, we'll explore Patrick Doyle’s score from the first entry in the new APES trilogy, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. We’ll discuss how and why it’s radically different than Jerry Goldsmith’s 1968 score, but also which elements they share in common.

SPOILERS for pretty much all the major plot points of RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES!
