New ‘Rise of the Planet of The Apes’ Trailer Unleashed

I love the original Planet of the Apes films, even Conquest and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. Tim Burton’s monstrosity of a remake left the franchise scarred and untouched for nearly a decade. That was until 20th century FOX went ahead and decided to do a prequel/reboot titled “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. I like the title and how it follows the tradition of the original films, but quite frankly, I am still not sold on this thing. You can watch the 2nd trailer below and judge for yourself.

The movie hits theaters on August 5th, and stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis.

Official Plot Synopsis:

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

Fernando Caire is a cosplayer, an artist, an aspiring Video editor, a prop builder, a writer, and a cinephile, with a PHD in awesome. He loves cinema, both good and bad. You will catch him once a month with a group of like minded masochists who endure 8 hours of the worst movies in cinematic history...for fun. He loves video games (shows off his "team Ps3" shirt) and loves writing about them when he gets the chance (though the only ones he ever received for review have been bad). The San Diego Comic Con is what he considers to be his once a year vacation. You will find him in line for Hall H bright and early and if you are between him and any kind of free swag...God help you.
