Trolling for Trailer: Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Posted by Mike in / April 14, 2011
Yeah, I know, the title is a mouthful, but the idea is possibly even more troubling. That is, until you see this trailer. The last Planet of teh Apes film, by Tim Burton, was a complete disaster. Other than some fancy prosthetics and a fairly good performance from Tim Roth, the film was terrible, and critics and viewers alike agreed. But where Burton’s PotA failed, Rise will definitely, well, rise… This is an intelligent sci-fi concept that leads to some badass apes taking over the planet. The tone and style are all perfect, the cast is formidable, including James Franco, Brian Cox, John Lithgow and Andy Serkis, and the effects outdo the Burton film, both technically and creatively. Just watch the trailer and see for yourself.
