“Rise of the Apes” Moves to Thanksgiving Slot
Thanksgiving is about to get a whole lot hairier. The “Planet of the Apes” pre-quel, “Rise of the Apes” is moving from a summer slot to Thanksgiving week (November 23). Twentieth Century Fox thinks there are too many family films that weekend and wants to offer something different. The focus of this film is said to be genetic engineering and Deadline.com says it should be called “Apetar.” Funny!!!
