We may not like to say it Harry Potter, Transformers are both doing their runs in cinemas near you and though we may not like it Harry Potter has now finished the show must go on. There’s still some great movies ahead for us July 29th Captain America, August 5th Super 8, 19th Cowboys & Aliens but in between that we have RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
Lets be honest here, Rupert Wyatt’s adaptation was getting a rough time just before the first teaser trailer has arrived and even after it arrived it still got its harsh critics. Thankfully overtime the critics have been changing their mind and I can honestly say this movie is going to be the dark horse of all the blockbusters, WETA’s CGI rendering of the animals is so realistic giving the monkeys an emotive, expressive feel. There’s even mutterings online that Andy Serkis should b in contention for an oscar for his superb work as Cesar, is it just gossip? Does he deserve the merit? August 11th we shall find out!
20th Century Fox late this afternoon sent us 3 new UK TV Spots and a new poster which you can check out below.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES combines fantastic storytelling with the next leap in Visual Effects for an emotional and action-packed motion picture experience unlike any other. Man’s arrogance sets off a chain of events that leads to intelligence in apes and a challenge to our place as the dominant species on the planet. Caesar, the first intelligent ape, is betrayed by humans and rises up to lead his species’ spectacular race to freedom and the ultimate showdown with Man. In Caesar, WETA – the Oscar-winning visual effects team behind Avatar – have created a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES stars James Franco, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and John Lithgow with British director Rupert Wyatt directing.
