More monkeys

I always wonder about authors like Pierre Boulle, who wrote both The Bridge Over The River Kwai and the novel that inspired Planet of the Apes. That's a wide-ranging literary legacy, you know? I'm sure more people have read The Bridge Over The River Kwai than La Plan├Ęte des singes, but certainly more people have watched The Planet of the Apes than read the two books put together. Anyway, Boulle's monkey book is the gift that keeps on giving (to his estate, anyway): Fox has just released a short trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. According to USA Today, the film is set 10 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes and features Jason Clarke, who replaces James Franco as the "top human who must outwit and outlast" Caesar, his chimpanzee nemesis.
