Brief Teaser for Rise of the Planet of the Apes

20th Century Fox is releasing the full trailer for Rupert Wyatt’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” (man, how clunky is that title?) sometime tomorrow through Apple, but until then, they’ve released this brief snippet from the trailer.

Set in present-day San Francisco, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES reveals the origins of a war that ultimately led to a global apocalypse – and to Earth becoming the Planet of the Apes. The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings is taking on its most ambitious challenge, creating for the first time a non-human CGI character that delivers a dramatic performance with real emotion and intelligence.

“Apes” stars James Franco, Brian Cox, Andy Serkis, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, and Tom Felton, and is scheduled for August 5, 2011.

Look for the full trailer later tomorrow. Until then, this will have to do.
