Did You Know? (1)

  • This is the 9th film overall since the genesis of the Planet of the Apes film series. The original series consisted of 5 films, and this was followed by a Tim Burton remake (of the 1968 film) in 2001, which was a major disappointment. The rebooted trilogy began with the 2011 blockbuster, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

  • "It's good as an artist to always remember to see things in a new, weird way."
  • " I've always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they'd still say I'm a dark personality. "
  • "One person's craziness is another person's reality."
  • " Things that I grew up with stay with me. You start a certain way, and then you spend your whole life trying to find a certain simplicity that you had. It's less about staying in childhood than keeping a certain spirit of seeing things in a different way."
  • "A lot of things you see as a child remain with you... you spend a lot of your life trying to recapture the experience. "
  • "Movies are like an expensive form of therapy for me."
  • "I can't remember any dreams in my life. There's so much strange in real life that it often seems like a dream."
