How Bonobo Can You Go

The post title is just one of many terrible/brilliant puns used in titling the score to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. “Look Who’s Stalking,” “Past Their Primates,” “Aped Crusaders,” “Monkey See, Monkey Coup,” “Close Encounters of the Furred Kind”. There are many.

And it looks like it’s not just Apes that composer Michael Giacchino had fun with. The Star Trek Into Darkness soundtrack features “Warp Core Values,” and, “Earthbound and Down”; John Carter has “A Thern for the Worse” (and, of course, “Get Carter”); and Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol includes the quite marvellous/terrible: “Kremlin with Anticipation.”
