Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'!
Apes Will Rise! Fox has unveiled the teaser trailer on Apple for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a new prequel in the beloved Planet of the Apes sci-fi series. Just yesterday, WETA revealed their first look at the movie, as they're doing all of the CGI rendering on every ape, including Caesar, played by Andy Serkis. Now we have our first tease of what to expect and it looks really, really good. I'm intrigued by how realistic all of the apes are, compared to the men-in-suit of the classic films, but the emotion on Caesar's face is what makes me feel like this will be amazing. This was only just a teaser, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!
