New Rise of the Apes trailer gives hope to ape-kind

07.11.2011

You know, ask me in 2010, and I never would have said that the movie with the most effective marketing of this year would be RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. A prequel sounded like typical Hollywood BS, but I have not seen a trailer for this movie that doesn't seem insanely cool.

Here we have a new full length spot starring Ceaser, the chimp becoming self aware. His CGI gets better with age, and I have a hunch he'll be a very engaging lead. Probably far more so than Franco.

This new trailer shows his rise to intelligence and his bonds with humans, and what drives him to start the great ape rebellion.

Extra Tidbit: In the original, did we nuke the world and cause apes to evolve rapidly, or cause humans to reverse evolve? I never quite figured that out.

George Henderson!

Does anybody else immediately think of Harry and the Hendersons whenever Lithgow is shown with that monkey? I wonder how ole' Harry fits into this whole rising of the Apes? After all he's the missing link. Would he side with the Apes or us? Could he be our only hope for survival??

Wow, this really looks like it's going to be a good movie. Definitely not what I expected when I first heard of it.

In the original series the apes evolved by two of them traveling back in time and leaving their smart baby ape Caesar. Then they just kind of... got smart by watching/listening to him. Also there was some thing about cats and dogs being extinct so humans trained apes better as household pets. I love the originals, but yeah, they didn't offer a real solid explanation there. In the 20 or so years that take place between the 3rd and 4th Apes movies, all of the apes in the world seem to have

Terrific trailer! I think they should have seperated themselves from the Plant of the Apes franchise. But The trailers have me convinced... I'm there opening weekend!

The trailer paints a good picture of the film and it does look a lot better than I anticipated it would be. However, I still have an issue with the fact that this is how the Apes somehow take over the entire planet. I sense that the explanation for a planet-wide take over will be quickly gazed over, and the trailer seems to present a limited boundary for the revolution, or invasion, or w/e you want to call it. Otherwise, this looks pretty interesting.

Wicked

I'm pretty stoked to see this shiite... When I heard this was being made I re-watched the Wahlberg/Burton movie and I gotta say, what a shitty movie that was... This looks promising... But then again, I'm sure I thought the same aboot that one too... My lack of faith disturbs, myself.

Tassi in a bad mood?

I thought Franco was terrific in 127 Hours
But Rise... looks promising, though I'm still not convinced by the CGI. Having said that I think it'll be a lot more gripping and engaging than most blockbusters released this year (judging by the trailer)

When this was announced, I couldn't care less...then I started seeing the trailes, and actually realized the conceopt behind the movie...and I think it's looking better and better. Very excited.
And Tassi, I glean from your comment that you're not a Franco fan, huh?

looks like the EXACT same plot as Deep Blue Sea...But

Ok, I'll admit it..I had NO intention of seeing this in theaters because the 1st few teasers just did NOTHING for me. But after seeing THIS trailer...all I can say is WOW! Some repositioning & addition of some new scenes w/ a pretty awesome trailer music track. For me...This is the 100% definition of someone who was "on the fence" before but is now awaiting the Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.

(Hell...even the title sounds less clunky now)

Total agreement...

I still tear up every time he hugs Lithgow. This could be an incredible film.
