Andy Serkis has to be the most versatile actor alive today - going from Gollum to King King to Godzilla and now to Caesar, leader of the ape revolution. I can't imagine how much dieting and exercise he has to do to gain and lose all that weight for those roles.

July 11 is opening night for the next chapter in the Planet of the Apes series. A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. In addition to the ever-changing Andy Serkis, this one also stars Gary Oldman and Keri Russell.

Plan to get tickets for a showtime near 7:30. (CONFIRMED - Gateway is now selling tickets for a 7:30 showing in 3D.) We meet outside the theater by 6:45 so we can go in and sit together. Be sure to buy your tickets online in advance. Go to:

Afterwards we will grab some food and drinks at Baby Acapulco across the street, and share our own reviews of the movie. Expect lots of geekish gushing, scathing criticisms, or just plain nit-picking.

See you there!
