‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ trailer

Posted at 7:00 am, April 17, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

It’s been called ‘Caesar’ and ‘Rise of the Apes’ but now, for the real dummies in the audience, 20th Century Fox have finally settled on a clunky but descriptive title for their upcoming prequel: ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’. The trailer (above) is a mixed bag: James Franco and Freida Pinto are always dependable but the apes themselves, despite being designed by Peter Jackson’s WETA, look somewhat fake. Will it live up to the original or will this be a throwback to Tim Burton’s horrible remake? We’ll find out on August 12.
