Rise of the Planet of the Apes, looks GREAT!
In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, what started out as an act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war the likes of which mankind has never faced before. WETA Digital, the Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of "The Lord of the Rings" franchise and AVATAR is yet again is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape with unbelievable emotion and intelligence, and epic battles between man and primate. This Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer really has me itching to see more.
Directed by Rupert Wyatt
Official Synopsis: At the story's heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug's creator, Will Rodman (James Franco) and a primatologist Caroline Aranha (Freida Pinto), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned in an ape sanctuary in San Bruno. Seeking justice for his fellow inmates, Caesar gives the fellow apes the same drug that he inherited. He then assembles a simian army and escapes the sanctuary - putting man and ape on a collision course that could change the planet forever.
