New Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer is online and looking good!

06.02.2011

While the first trailer for Fox's upcoming RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES intrigued, this brand new trailer released over at Yahoo! Movies is much better, showcasing some truly terrific new simian visuals. The work on Caesar himself - the leader of the ape revolution - is particularly fantastic, and will undoubtedly look even better once the finished film rolls around later this summer.

What element hasn't quite grabbed me yet, though? James Franco. I know they needed to sell this film on something besides the brand and effects, but the actor - great as he can be - just looks wrong in the role, and frankly, unbelievable as a scientist. Hopefully, seeing him in the actual film will prove my doubts wrong.

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES opens wide on August 5th.

Synopsis: An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE 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 mankind’s hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

I don't know. CGI is STILL not as good as it should be. If the apes are sitting farely still, it should be a blend of something that's really there w/ CGI. In spite of that and them showing too much, I'll eventually see it. I'm a sucker for animals raging on humanity . . .

Nope

This still looks like pure Velveeta and nothing more. That line by James Franco is one of the most hilarious I've heard in a while. They Call It The Cure! I'm going to see it strictly for the camp value.

By good

you mean hilarious, right?

And I have a feeling that Franco took part in this in an ironic/artistic/James Franco-ish way.

Why don't they just shoot them dead?

Did James Franco make them bullet-proof or something? They're apes. It made some degree of sense in the scenario that they rose as the new dominant species after man nearly whiped itself out in a nuclear war - As presented in the original film(s). But this? How would they be any harder to control than a mob of people? Just seems silly to me.

Maybe this trailer depicts the first 15 minutes of the movie - before the apes are allmowed down in a matter of minutes. That's be a twist.

This look like every "animal attacks because of science" movie that SyFy channel puts out every 3 or 4 times a month..only this has better special effects and acting..I'm not sure I guess I'm still on the fence..I'll probably still go see it since August is a shitty month for movies.

Looks awful, although I am just a little bit curious to see how a couple of damn monkeys manage to take over the present day world. Even if they're as intelligent as humans, they're still fucking monkeys.

I thought the preview was cool, but I also couldn't help thinking of the ewoks when the apes were lining the roof with spears, it made me laugh.

WOW. I forgot all about this one.

for real. but the CGI looks really good. Will the apes talk in this one. I assume they will at the end. My question is this. Is this a prequel to the old planet of the apes or the one tim directed. Anyways I am pumped.I like how they aren't over hyping this. Their being very quiet. this could either be a sleep hit of the summer or a complete and utter train wreck. Only time will tell. So far I am sayin this looks truly amazing. ANd franco is an amazing actor. Very good. To me he's very under

The CGI may leave a bit to be desired at this point, but there are still a few months to go. The trailers for Green Lantern show that things can keep improving. I'm excited for this. More than Burton's remake, actually. "Conquest" has always been my favorite of the series...

I'm not feeling the Franco either. I'm not sure Franco is feeling the Franco. Purely a paycheck role? Too burned out from doing 15,000 things simultaneously? Whatever the case, this looks like a snoozy Night of the Living Dead update with apes instead of zombies, and here's hoping that CG is far from finished - I'm going to have to go against local consensus and say it looks awful considering today's blockbuster standards. Sorry :(

CGI looks a lot less realistic than I thought, but that doesn't sway me. Fucking August? God damn it. I was under the impression it'd hit this summer.

I don't know...

I won't completely write it off yet, but that trailer didn't do much for me. It just looks too generic and predictable with one dimensional characters.

I was really excited to watch this trailer. Too bad I couldn't make it halfway through the GOD DAMN T-MOBILE COMMERCIAL without losing my shit. There are literally ads all over the page, I don't understand why every trailer I want to watch I have to sit here and watch the same exact, annoying, unmutable commercial. Come on already.

I never realized how infuriating a 15-second wait can be. I guess Louis CK was right...the new generation expects everything within a MINI-SECOND! We've actually CAPPED the ads on our videos, so no need to lose your shit.

Everything on our site is FREE, FREE, FREE, but we still have to make some money in order to pay the 30-40 people who help us run it, no?

As long as an ad doesn't exceed the length of the video I'm watching, I think it's a small price to pay for a website with great content.

You could have just hopped over to Yahoo! Trailers (sourced in the article) if you were that concerned about seeing a commercial.

lol I admit my hatred is pretty much completely irrational, but there's just something extremely awful about that one particular commercial with the rapper guy flippin on his sidekick or whatever it is he's doing.

They lost me with the CG Apes

Its like I Am Legend's Darkseekers all over again, and it looks more like a remake of Project X than a Planet of the Apes movie. Plus what about all those poor chimps being put out of work by CGI? Bubbles needs to eat too, and times have been tough for him ever since Micheal died.

This looks good


I still want to know though, what timeline is this film in?

The original Heston feature film timeline?

The Burton retread timeline?

Another rebooted timeline?

Well it's obviously not the Heston because I didn't see a single Ape waiting tables or returning library books. The title font is the same as the Burton version even though I don;t see the fellas taken the time to replace honest Abe with an nearly identical yet monkey version...

Pretty sure this is supposed to be within the continuity of the original series, though from what I can discern it's taking an entirely different approach to the backstory than what we learned from those flicks.

I serious doubts in the beginning but they're almost non-existent now. Looks very dark and goddamn is the face CGI for the apes fantastic.

I am sorry am I supposed to see only movies that I am truly excited about? Sometime I see movies that I have lost interest in or I don't feel so highly about because I think a movie experience in a theater is different then at home. Sue me.

@AlmostFamous - I agree with you. I have seen many movies in theaters that I didn't have much interest in seeing. It's always a great feeling to see a movie that has fallen off my radar and sometimes come out loving it.
