fb share tweet share

ApesWith Dawn of the Planet of the Apes proving that the 2011 Rise was no fluke, it’s clear that all it takes to revive a languishing sci-fi property is the right combination of passion, talent, and vision. (And a decade or so to forget about any terrible Tim Burton versions.) So with Caesar staging a conquest of the box office ($103 million worldwide so far), we here at GFR put our heads together to come up with other 1970s science movies primed for a resurrection. Some of them are cult classics, some of them are forgettable, and some of them are downright lamentable, but they’ve all got at least a small kernel of potential to become something awesome…if they can find the right people to guide them.

    As much as I hate the idea of remakes, most of these do sound like good candidates. I’ll offer up one more: Silent Running. With climate change and global warming being hot button issues this could fit right into those conversations.
