Four seconds of WETA ape revealed in Rise of the Planet of the Apes video

04.11.2011by:

I wasn't aware that we were calling this RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES now to better associate it with the series that spawned it, but let's blow past that news into what we really want to see. Mother****ing apes!

We've seen practically nothing from this film so far, other than a few obscure set shots and one official image of James Franco in a lab (above). Naturally, the first video clip we get from the film will be close to nothing, and so it is. Behold, four seconds of CGI ape glory!

It's pretty much a teaser of a teaser, which shows how WETA is building the apes out of pixels and Andy Serkis. It looks...well, like an ape. Do they talk in this version? Has that been established yet?

Check it out below for yourself. Blink and you'll miss it.

Extra Tidbit: A good movie that absolutely did not deserve a bunch of remakes and sequels...

Extra Tidbit: Word on that.

You may also want to give the book that inspired it all a read: Monkey Planet by Pierre Boulle. Much better than any of the films.

Actually WP-DFA its an interquel. It sits between Escape and Conquest.

Awkwardly this makes it either the second film based on timeline, fourth film based on the existing order of the films or the sixth based on shooting order.

I might not be excited at all for this new Apes movie BUT that 4 seconds of ape was pretty impressive.

Yep, I love everything about JoBlo..

Except for these media players...I usually get the news from JoBlo, but use YouTube to view trailers and clips.

The footage looks great, BTW.

Looks good

I've taken an online survey and it showed a rough cut of the trailer. It looks very good.

Apetastic

I was never on the haterside for this one. The book is great. The first movie was great. So why not make a contemporary version. The ape looks awesome. He's got those human eyes. Creepy!

Planet of the Apes is one of the All-Time Best Sci-Fi movies ever, right up there with Alien, Blade Runner, etc. The Concept is so solid, just due to our recognizing of Apes as such close relatives, it is scary to us. The sequels were just too depressing, and Burton's remake was brutal.
Looking forward to seeing this, what the heck?

Looks good. I want a trailer!

And yeah, I usually open an extra tab with youtube to view your clips because your player is slow and advertising is annoying sometimes. Just sayin'.

Agreed. It's gotten ridiculous.

I never watch trailers here for that reason. Oh and also because of the shitty joblo media player...

Agreed. I hate people who constantly bitch about sites selling out and putting up all kinds of ads because if it was our site we would do it too, people need to make money. That being said, you do walk a fine line. Having an ad play EACH time you want to watch a video is asinine. I find myself trying to pause the video before it's over just so I can watch it again without the damn ad. It's BULLSHIT.

if you use Firefox, the addons AdBlock and NoScript will eliminate most of them.

My problem with it is putting ads before trailers. Trailers ARE advertisements. Why do I have to sit through a 15/30 second advertisement to watch a 30/60 second advertisement?

I understand Joblo needs advertising revenue, but yeah, did there need to be an advertisement before a FOUR SECOND long clip!?!
