The simian uprising goes down August 5th, and to make damn skippy we all know about it, 20th Century Fox has just issued a fresh trailer for Rupert Wyatt's RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. If you wanna see Andy Serkis in some highly impressive makeup/motion capture...cop a dose underneath!
As a Bay Area native, the part I dig best about the new trailer is the way the Golden Gate Bridge is overrun by pissed off little fur-balls. Hell, one even goes suicidal and leaps off the bridge toward a helicopter. Now that's a goddamn martyr!
With Freida Pinto (below), Tom Felton, Brian Cox, John Lithgow, Tyler Labine, David Hewlett, Sonja Bennett, Leah Gibson and Chelah Horsdal all lending support - 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 man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
Witness the RISE August 5th.
