Watch Now: ‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Trailer Released
The Movie God   |  @   |  

The first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Planet of the Apes prequel, titled Rise of the Planet of the Apes, has now been released online.

The movie shows the origins of the apes that eventually evolved beyond human beings and took over the planet after a scientist’s testing shows shocking advancements in evolution in one of the test subjects, named Caesar.

Instead of going with costumes and makeup, it was decided long ago to use the popular performance capture/CG technologies used in movies like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong, and Avatar. To make things a little easier, the same team that worked on those films, WETA Digital, was brought in for the job.

You can see the trailer below the line now.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes stars James Franco, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, and is directed by Rupert Wyatt.

  1. Reminds me of the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
    Hopefully it’ll be as good.

  6. Looking forward to it… but I do have to point out one major flaw. Just shoot the damn dirty apes! Sheesh, there’s only 100 or so of them. Unless the apes were smart enough to steal all the drugs and dope up their fellow monkeys at all the zoos. Then that’s a lot of poo-flingers you have to contend with…

    Now I’m just rambling. Can’t wait to see it! w00t!
