Rise of the Planet of the Apes Full Trailer, You Know, Rises

12 Comments

The apes won’t be rising to enslave mankind until August 15, 2011 in Rupert Wyatt’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” (still hate that clunky title), but until then, here’s the first full trailer for the sci-fi reboot. Or is it a prequel? Well, one of those. Nevertheless, the trailer looks decent, though somewhat underwhelming. And James Franco as a brilliant scientist? That’ll take some getting used to. By the way, this is the third trailer that is using that siren musical beat, starting with “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, then copied by “Green Lantern”, and now, “Apes”. Is the same guy cutting all these big-budget trailers or what?

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.

James Franco, Tom Felton, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, and Freida Pinto fights for our rights against evil ape king Andy Serkis on August 15, 2011.

    SWEET! This looks interesting. I’d like to see a sequel that actually shows the war and how we lost, and then we can go into the territory of the old films and tv show.

    Oh and the siren beat was used in the “Inception” trailer too. This one seems a little different though as it’s not as pronounced and actually just sounds like part of the music as opposed to an additional sound effect.

    Is it just me or does this only make sense in the universe of the original version Planet Of The Apes and not Tim Burton’s remake?……..Tim Burton’s version implicated that it was due to a fluke in time travel that the apes took over at the end’s twist……Charleton Heston’s version never felt it necessary to explain a back story to why the apes ruled earth……..thus, why this ties in with that version and not the remake……

      The explained the backstory in 2 sequels back in the Heston-days.

      Yeah I’d say that this was a telling of the Heston era hostory, and hopefully we’ll revisit those stories later but updated of course.

    Looks good, although the apes still need a lot of work to be believable.
