Hey, it’s another trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, because showing every scene in a movie is the hot new marketing thing to do! But seriously, I’m really starting to feel as though I’ve seen just about everything that Apes has to offer. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing, as the more I see, the more the film looks like a solid and not entirely brainless film. I still think it’s an interesting choice to try to pre-boot the Planet of the Apes franchise in much the same way that X-Men: First Class pre-booted the X-Men film series, but that’s neither here nor there. The special effects are awesome, it stars James Franco, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Andy Serkis, and we get to see apes overthrow San Francisco. Works for me! Also, is Tom Felton just completely incapable of playing anything but snivelling assholes? First Draco Malfoy, and now this! Oh well, at least it looks like he gets hit in the face with a chimp turd.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes comes out August 5, 2011.
