Seven Clips From Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Hear that? That’s the sound of seven clips from “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” coming to enslave you, so best stock up on the bananas for insurance, cause, you know, apes love bananas, or so I’ve heard. Hey, it never hurts to suck up to your future overlords, am I right? Anyways, check out the clips below. The film opens early next month.

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, Leah Gibson and directed by Rupert Wyatt.
