When the talk of another Planet of The Apes movie was on the horizon the fear went through peoples minds as people remembered the ‘crap’ that Tim Burton made in 2001. Bring in British director Rupert Wyatt the the whole sense of another movie was still on the worrying side but as time went on James Franco was added so was Frieda Pinto, John Lithgow, Tom Felton, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox made up the cast, WETA the team behind Lord Of The Rings, Avatar FX were on board. The first footage started to appear things started to get better and now a year on we have a second UK Trailer and boy this is the best of the bunch.
The new trailer comes from the unlikely source of The Sun newspaper and its packed with more new footage and we see more of the ‘caring side’ of Cesar and the brutality he was subjected too, but we still dont know if he’ll talk.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES will be released on August 12th (USA August 5th).
An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. The film is a reality-based cautionary tale — a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind’s hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Oscar(R)-winning visual effects house WETA Digital – employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for “Avatar” – will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actor
