EXTRACTION 2---Joe Russo commented on the Netflix sequel starring Chris Hemsworth, “Yeah we’re still working on two. We’re in the script phase right now but we’re hoping to shoot that sometime next year. And then you know, say I’m super excited, Hemsworth’s super excited, Netflix is excited so it’s really just a function of getting the script done.”





THE BATMAN---photo shows the exterior of the Batcave on the film set that is described as an, “immense rock face which had been decorated with trees and shrubbery to exaggerate how vast the structure is”.





CHERRY---photo released from the Russo Brothers movie starring Tom Holland as an Iraq war veteran, suffering from PTSD, who goes on a crime spree.





DMZ---photo released from the HBO Max miniseries based on the comic book that stars Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt.





THE EXPANSE---Amazon renewed the series for Season 6 which will be the last season.

CHAPELLE'S SHOW---Netflix removed the show at Dave Chapelle's request. He claimed Viacom CBS owns the rights to the show and has never paid him for it. He claimed Netflix offering the show was like "fencing stolen goods".

ONE DAY AT A TIME---Pop TV cancelled the series.

TRIVIA---5' 2" character actor Lou Wagner appeared in two hit movies that led to a series of other hit movies. Wagner played the obnoxious, know-it-all Schuyler Schultz in AIRPORT, the hit disaster movie that led to other hit disaster movies including THE TOWERING INFERNO, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE and EARTHQUAKE.
Wagner is best known, but not recognized, for playing the chimpanzee Lucius in the original PLANET OF THE APES and the busboy in CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Seven more PLANET OF THE APES movies were filmed.

Gosh I was a big PotA fan back in the day. The tv series was a hit in the UK. Unlike the US where it sank without trace, true?

Popular in the UK. I used to watch it Sunday nights on LWT. There was a Marvel UK comic as well.

Wow, He looks just like Mike Myers so if someone had said to me that he is Mike Myers dad I would have believed it to 100 percent.

Doesn't seem very cost effective. Couldn't they find a rocky cliff-side or use a model?
Amazing set, I'll give them that.

Yes, I remember the comic. Already being a Marvel fan as a kid I saw the UK weekly and had it bought for me every week. I remember the free poster with issue 1. Unbelievably for me at the time a stall in Sheffield Market had the US issue one. It was when Marvel had magazines aimed at a more mature market where they had articles as well as a couple of strips. I had several Doc Savage ones at the time. Naturally I snapped it up. Wish I still had it!

The interesting thing is this influenced the creation of House of Hammer magazine in the UK, which used to have articles and comic strip adaptations of Hammer horror films. And from this format grew the Doctor Who Weekly with a similar format which in turn gave rise to the monthly which is now I believe the world's longest running sf based magazine.

Of course the UK Planet of the Apes weekly had reprints of the US magazine. A well as the odd article. But I do remember the success of the tv series here, and being very surprised at the news in some US mag (a rare Famous Monsters I think - they were hit and miss too in my area) that reported that the tv series of Apes in the US ended up in the weekday afternoons. Here it was very successful and inspired double bill re-releases of the film series in all the major cinema chains.

The 70s POTA TV series was my first nerd obsession when I was aged around 9 or 10. It predates my JAWS and STAR WARS nuggetry by 1 and 3 years.
As well as loving the Sunday night ritual of sitting down to absorb every moment of it, it also sparked my collecting habit, with me buying the Marvel comics, the Topps trading cards* (with the chewing gum) and various books/annuals tie-ins, with all my pocket money.
I actually saw the feature films some time after.
I even remember playing out a re imagined game of the TV series, with my junior's school mates, in the park at the back of ours.

*I still have them, all 66, in a box with the POTA annuals and a few, well worn issues of the comics.

Then do you remember the bunch who went around doing some sort of live show? I remember a report on the BBC's Nationwide or maybe even our local bit, Look North, about a troop of performers in Apes makeup and outfits, but don't remember the context, i.e. theatre show or whatever.

But I do remember the Saturday afternoon walking around Barnsley market, and some chap walking around with cheap but cheerful apes glove puppets shouting "come and get yer Galens"!

The burning question is why did the tv show not work in the US? With top Chimp Roddy McDowell as the star it's odd that it didn't even make a full season if I remember rightly. But yes, I too remember it being on Sunday evenings. I'd say it was pretty massive in the UK.

I was just 3 in 1974, so I wouldn’t know of the Apes series until 1983 or so, when two episodes were combined into TV movies. They had titles like, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Better Bologna Sandwich on the Planet of the Apes.”

I loved the series and of course all of the films. I can still recite to this day the Power Books and Records adaptations of the films. Not even zooba can make that claim!

I believe the Apes series fizzled because it aired opposite SANFORD & SON (a perrenial top-10 hit).
