Rise of the Planet of the Apes Trailer: The Origins Story for Our Apathy

What I don’t get is why? Why make a prequel? How many people were clamoring for another Planet of the Apes film? Maybe it’s just me (is it just me?). There wasn’t that much interest in the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes before it disappointed the world, right? Is there something about this story that touches a nerve for some people? Because, for me, I don’t care that much about a planet overrun with apes, and I’m even less interested in how it happened. And I’m even half as interested if Tim Roth is not going to snarl throughout the film. The prequel looks like another routine medical experiment gone awry story followed by a bunch of CGI apes clobbering humans and knocking down helicopters. Great?

I’m not trying to be a buzzkill, but I just don’t care. Maybe I’m in the minority?
