Rise of the Planet of the Apes gets a rather good international trailer

Jun. 20, 2011by:

Of all the films I thought I'd be looking forward to, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES certainly wasn't one of them, not even back when it had the far more manageable title of RISE OF THE APES.

The last attempt at updating that series was disastrous, and I didn't think a James Franco-led version would be any more successful. But I have to say, the more I see of this movie, the more I'm holding out hope it might actually turn out to be worthwhile. If you view the film in a vacuum, and don't necessarily ascribe any of the other films to it, the concept of an ape becoming super intelligent is a pretty interesting sci-fi concept, and I'm looking forward to seeing Andy Serkis be the star of the show as mo-cop Ceasar, speaking nary a word the entire time.

There's a new sixty second international spot for the film that you can check out below which chronicles Ceasar's journey toward becoming Ape Spartacus. It would be nice if this ended up being as good as I feel it could be, though trailers have misled me before.

Extra Tidbit: Still not sure about Franco though. I know he likes being in everything, but this is an odd role for him.

Shed a little tear...

After he protected Lithgow and hugged him in the street. This is looking terrific.

Yes, we had to used fake looking cgi yet again because we can't recreate the technology used in Congo 16 years ago. I get using CGI for the "army" of apes scenes but when it's just Caesar on screen what's the fucking point, why not use an animatronic ape thats "real."

As an Apes fan, I'm hoping for the best while anticipating a disappointment...

The pop up ads on this site are getting ridiculous, btw. I can't click on anything...

The commercial looks good from the few frames that I can see. Does anybody else have major troubles with the JoBlo Mediaviewer? I can't watch anything on in without freezing!

Kinda plays into stereotypes when US trailers are full of meaningless action (ie, stupidity), while the international trailers are full of emotion and plot (ie, not stupidity).

The CGI still doesn't look convincing at all, but that doesn't sway my interest.

i'll prob watch this

im just curious to find out how a bunch of apes are going to overthrow the all the militaries of the world. i mean, one or two battles, sure i guess. but how are they going to win a war against humans? unless they launch some nukes or something. but really? c'mon you have to give humans more credit than that.

I heard somewhere they blow it all up...though I am curious how. And I'm sure they're aiming to make this a trilogy or something.

I didn't watch this since I thought the first trailer gave too much away already. It does seem like deep blue sea or T3: RISE of the machines, just with apes instead of sharks or robots this time.

You know...

You're right...it is probably the best looking trailer I've seen so far...my problem is, I just don't care about the movie as a whole.

i just wish these trailers could get a rise out of me (lol.. ok sorry). Seriously though, the CGI just looks like CGI, save for the one shot of the ape they worked on for their promo clip. It looks like a mess, to be honest.

Would it have been that hard to create apesuits? If they're that worried about their faces looking so awful then they could cgi their eyes or mouths but keep the rest as physical performances.. it would be so much more believable then 45 blurred CGI creatures.. enough

i dont work in visual effects. but it's probably much more difficult and expensive to cgi just a face on top of a filmed performance than cgi-ing a whole body. i mean, i agree with you that method would have been better, but hey should have also just gotten a whole cast of oscar nominated actors, writers and directors while we're just requesting anything we want

This movie looks like complete shit. The effects feature some of the worst cgi I've seen in a trailer for a major release in a long time.
