Rise of the Planet of the Apes Third Clip and Comic Con Sizzle Reel

3 Comments

The apes do plenty of rising in these two new clips from Rupert Wyatt’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, including a third clip starring Tom Felton and an action-packed sizzle reel that made its premiere over at Comic Con. It all looks great and whatnot, but I still don’t see how a bunch of apes (even if there’s a hundred or thousand of them) could possibly take over the planet, unless they start a nuclear war or something, or force mankind to nuke themselves and they, the apes, somehow survive. Anyways, I guess we’ll find out when the film opens August 5, 2011.

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.

Starring James Franco, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Tyler Labine, Chelah Horsdal, and Leah Gibson .

    CGI still looks fake and very…well, CGI. BORING.

    Boring? The concept for this film is pretty cool. At least from the trailers, the action looks good and tight.

    Not sure it’s fair to say a movie is boring based on the CGI is accurate. How the film is written, the movie direction and pacing of the editing contribute to whether a movie is boring or not. I’ve seen boring movies before, but it was never because of the level of the CGI.
