New Trailer, Images, and Poster for RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

     June 22, 2011


We’ve got a slew of monkey news for you today. A UK trailer and poster, as well as a batch of new images from Rise of the Planet of the Apes have been released. This international trailer looks to be the best one yet. I think it gets the tone just right, plus we get our first look at the apes standing up (next step, clothes). I still don’t think an Apes reboot is necessary, but I think a sequel to Rise, wherein we see the apes begin to build society anew, would be much more interesting than this film. Nevertheless, the effects on the apes keep looking better and better each time we see a new trailer. The new images released give us a great look at some of WETA Digital’s work.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and images. Starring James Franco, Andy Serkis, Tom Felton, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, and Freida Pinto, Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on August 5th.

    I’m very excited to see a new take on these movies and hope it turns into a long running franchise like the originals.

  • Nick

    this keeps looking better and better. i really this doesnt disappoint

  • Jarvis

    Wow…I’m stunned. The new trailer is UH-MAZING!!! I think that they may have actually nailed the lid on the originals with this one. Very impressive…couple the effects, possible story line, & James Franco…this could be a hit. Looks nice…but that’s just my opinion.

    The new international trailer is fantastic! You really see the the brilliance of Ceasar and why he chose to rise against the humans. You don’t get any sense of that from the other trailers they make it look like he’s just smart and decides to escape and attack. Here we see him raised by a family, then imprisoned after protecting one of them and tortured by some shit head in charge of taking care of him.

    I figured out what the problem with the apes is. The eyes look too human. They don’t look like ape eyes.

    • Rosencrantz

      Hate to say it Alex, but that’s half the point. Their eyes are supposed to show more depth of cognitive ability. They speak of the apes awareness without using words.

    i don’t know what to make of this…the story seems pretty good but the the FX are throwing me way off.

    I look at the trailer, it look like its going to be a pretty good movie. I mean I have want for year for this movie, what i don’t like is that it doesnt have anything to do with the last planet of the apes movie. The last planet of the Apes ended with An American Astronaut Played by Mark Wahlberg ended up going through a worm hole in space after talking a small air craft without Authorization to go after his trainer monkey. Then his air craft crash landed on the ape planet, to make a long movie short he ended leaving that planet; Thinking he now returning home he ended up on another Planet further in the future. It ends with ape-like cops surrounding him and it ended. I waiting over 8-years for this movie and I hate when they totally change the movie like this, they even change the charaters!

    • A.

      the reason everything is different is because its not a continuation of the last move…its a remake…its obviously taking the story from the 4th movie in which ceaser takes over.
