Get a closer look at the damn, dirty apes with this hi-res Rise of the Planet of the Apes concept art

04.15.2011

In the WETA livestream the other day promoting the FX wizardry behind RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, there were some brief flashes of some concept art from the film. If that went by too quickly for your tastes we've got hi-res looks at all eight pieces of art from the film. Or perhaps I should say from the last 20 minutes of the movie.

All the art you see here is from the end of the movie when Caesar has riled up the troops and the simians begin to takeover the world, one San Francisco at a time. One of the film's big set pieces is an attack on the Golden Gate Bridge (as you glimpsed in the trailer as a gorilla launched himself at a helicopter) and you'll see some art from that scene here.

What do you think of RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES so far? With this and the trailer, are you liking what you see?

Ok. The apes have defeated humanity with spears...? Rrrriiight.... :)))
Even if they got their hands on guns,still it would not matter. Think about it. There are more of us than them.
Core idea of this movie is retarded.

So is this thing supposed to be in the original Apes timeline, the Burton retread timeline, or is it a new retread altogether by itself?

thats a good question! If I had to say it seems to maybe follow the burton time line. Cus in the old apes they came from space or something like that.

See, by the wordy title I get the impression that it falls in line with the original timeline.

Or is this a backdoor retread, where if it fails it's part of the original timeline, and if it succeeds it's a brand new reboot.

If it was my guess it would be connected with the original, because in the Burton timeline, the "Planet of the Apes" isnt actually Earth, its the planet that was colonized because of his ship crash landing through the time warp before he did. So i would assume its either a complete reboot or falls in line with the original..but even the original series was a circular timeline sort of thing...so i doubt even hollywood knows what theyre doing haha

I pray this will be America's future! Apes would likely do better running the nation,than that clueless bunch in D.C.

These images are gorgeous but the trailer itself didn't do much for me. I'm probably the only one on this site that was severely underwhelmed by that trailer so I'll get a ton of thumbs down but I'm just speaking my mind.

I found the casting of Franco a bit odd and hard to accept from the star, and a lot of the shots of people staring blindly at the apes moving around was pretty cheesy. It looks like a CGI overload, especially the spinning camera scene of David Oyelowo surrounded by

It looks like a CGI overload, especially the spinning camera scene of David Oyelowo surrounded by hundreds of apes. I just wish it did more for me.. but the concept and look of the trailer was pretty underwhelming IMO.

I'll still reserve my full judgment until AFTER I see it, but I'm not as enthusiastic.
