First trailer released for Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes posted

Ok, confession time, I’ve never watched Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes movie. To be honest, I’ve never felt the need to, the original films do me fine, thank you very much, Helena Bonham-Carter’s sexy chimp notwithstanding.

So when I heard about Rise of the Planet of the Apes, I was a little bit “meh” to be honest. By now I should know better, because the trailer has just been released by Fox, and damn if my curiosity isn’t piqued.

With a cast that includes, James Franco, Tom Felton, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Andy Serkis (who else) as ape Caeser, this looks like it could be pretty dark. Or utterly ridiculous, the jury is still out. Fox have launched a new website which so far only has the trailer but no doubt will have more content over the summer.

My love for the original movies means that I now want this to be really really good. Not just effects good but actually plot good. The script is written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver who also did *cough* The Relic, Eye for an Eye and The Hand that Rocks the Cradle…

The trailer looks promising, so bring on the Ape-ocalypse (sorry, sorry, sorry)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens in the US on August 8th. UK date TBC
