This brand new trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes has just arrived and it is just as incredible, if not better than the first! It goes into a little more detail here about how the Apes come to stand up against humans and attempt to take over. Some of the scenes are slightly disturbing, and the special effects of the apes themselves looks breathtaking. I feel the remake of Planet of the Apes was good, if a little too ‘nice’ in places, this new film looks to be taking on a much darker edge, more serious and from the looks of the trailer, all the better for it. Here is the synopsis:
An origin story set in present day San Francisco, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
The film stars James Franco, Tom Felton, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox and John Lithgow and is directed by Rupert Wyatt. The film will hit UK cinemas August 12th.
