Must Watch: The Best Damn 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Trailer Yet
"Caesar continues to show cognitive skills that far exceed that of a human." Another new trailer from the UK for Fox's Rise of the Planet of the Apes has hit the web via YouTube and I must say, it's the best trailer we've seen for this movie yet. It's only 60-seconds and much more to-the-point, but the footage from Weta they're using now looks better than ever. There's a lot of new footage in this, including some early scenes with John Lithgow that I know will be wonderful, as I'm really starting to feel Caesar's emotions just by looking at his face. I'm beginning to believe this really will be amazing, an incredible technical feat at least.

James Franco stars, along with Andy Serkis providing motion capture for Caesar and Weta doing CGI; Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, with Tom Felton.
