Here is the long awaited teaser trailer for 20th Century Fox's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The movie hits theaters on August 5th, and stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis.
Yesterday we were given a taste of what was to come through the live stream Q&A with WETA. We also shared some cool concept art, but not prepared us for the awesomeness of this teaser. The entire scope of this film feels epic.
An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. The film is a reality-based cautionary tale -- a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Oscar(R)-winning visual effects house WETA Digital - employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for "Avatar" - will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.
Check out the teaser trailer below and prepare to be excited. Be sure to sound off below in the comments.
