We're Back, Baby (as an Object of Destruction)

Back in 2009, we discussed how the Golden Gate Bridge is continually destroyed in movies.

The Bridge after it was attacked by the Breen on "Deep Space Nine."
Later that year, I was upset that the bridge was omitted from the mayhem in "2012," despite at least seven major landmarks behind obliterated in the trailer alone.

Well, it appears the bridge is reclaiming its status as Hollywood's favorite monument to screw with.

Check out the trailer for the new "Planet of the Apes" reboot, called "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."

In fairness, there's no evidence that the bridge gets destroyed. But that looks like a pretty nasty backup. Those drivers probably wish they had taken the ferry.
