Karen: All of you Ape-ophiles will be excited to hear that the original Planet of the Apes will be back in theaters one day only, July 24th, through Fathom Events! I've attended some other classic films shown through Fathom and they've been a lot of fun. Although I am sure most of us have seen POTA before (maybe many times), there's nothing quite like seeing these films in a theater with other fans. I encourage you to see if it is being shown in your area and check it out. I already got my ticket!

Karen: On another science fiction film-related note: if you happened to buy the recent release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director's Cut on Blu Ray, there is a minor error in the editing of the Kobayashi Maru sequence (the problem occurs when Sulu turns around to correct Saavik; you can read about it in detail at Trek Core here). Paramount has initiated a replacement program, so buyers can send in their faulty copies for corrected ones. Trek Core also has the details for the trade in program, and you can learn about that by clicking here. I emailed Paramount a few days ago but I haven't heard anything yet. While it's disappointing that this mistake made its way into the film, the fact that Paramount is willing to replace the disc is commendable. Hopefully those of us who jumped on this version of the film (me!) can get it replaced soon.
