New Title for 'Planet of the Apes' Prequel

You're probably thinking, what new title could they possibly come up with ? Isn't "Rise of the Apes" catchy enough ? Doesn't it appropriately represent what this movie is all about ? Well, apparently not, because Fox has just changed that title with the less catchy and longer "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". Because, obviously, nobody would acknowledge that this is a "Planet of the Apes" movie, without squeezing the whole trademark phrase in there. Fox really thinks very highly of us mortal people. But I think there's more to their constant tinkering with this movie. I think they think it's a stinker. They've been fiddling with release dates and title changes for some time now and we still haven't seen any promotional material, like a teaser, or a decent poster. Just some photos of Andy Serkis is his motion-capture jumpsuit. Perhaps they are desperately trying to salvage this movie in anyway they can. We'll see just how bad it really is.
