Trailer Time: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The last time apes ruled the box office, it was 2001 and Tim Burton was reimagining the famed franchise. A sequel never followed; instead, ten years later 20th Century Fox is giving us a prequel in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. This is one movie that’s been under the radar for a lot of folks, myself included. In a summer with Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America and the X-Men, this new Apes movie hasn’t been getting a ton of buzz. However, judging by this trailer, that could be a big mistake. I really love what I’m seeing here – from the feel to seemingly great sfx from WETA, Rise of the Planet of the Apes could be the sleeper blockbuster of the summer. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
