Courtesy of Yahoo, the new theatrical trailer for Rupert Wyatt’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is now online! The trailer is pretty outstanding and even though I’m not a huge “Planet of the Apes” fan, this trailer has me sold. I can’t say enough about how nice the apes look and will no doubt surpass the more recently Apes film by Tim Burton which I kind of hated…
There’s a lot more story info in this trailer compared to the teaser we got a few weeks ago. We now know that Cesar is the one who helps the apes gain their intelligence. One thing that hasn’t been revealed yet is if the apes will talk. As always, Andy Serkis does amazing things through motion capture… and James Franco looks stoned.
If someone doesn’t yell “Get your hands off me you damned dirty ape” in this movie, I’m gonna be pissed.
“Rise of the Planet Of The Apes” stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis and drops this August 5th.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
