New extended clips from RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and CONAN THE BARBARIAN have been released online thanks to Universal & Lionsgate. First up we have a 4 minute clip from Rise Of The Apes which really goes to town which shows the fantastic animation captured by Andy Serkis and we do get to see a selection of various expressions too and it really protrays the words that the actor tell us when he introduces the clip (Cesar playing with a Statue of Liberty is a nice little homage to the original). The Conan clip which is a red band one answers that question do 12 year old kids and violence do work? In Conan it does which shows some of the maniac violence which we’ll see in the movie and that Conan was always destined to be a great warrior from a young age especially when you can kneecap a grown adult!
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES will be released August 11th and CONAN THE BARBARIAN will be out August 24th.Vodpod videos no longer available.
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.
The colossal legend that is CONAN THE BARBARIAN is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight decades in the public imagination – in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small – Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before. Shot in 3D, the reimagining of one man’s mythical battle for revenge is finally here in this Epic action-adventure film. Directed By Marcus Nispel, starring Jason Momoa as Conan, plus Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Said Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman.
