Don't Watch: Trailer for Dumb Comedy 'C.I.Ape' with a CGI Chimp
"Please… this is a serious mission!" Lionsgate has released an official trailer for an Ace Entertainment Films production called C.I.Ape and if that title isn't cringe enough, just wait until you see the footage. I didn't know they still made trash like this nowadays. It's as if they paid to use the CGI model of the chimpanzee from the recent Planet of the Apes movie, but didn't pay the VFX artists to make him look any good. In the world of espionage, some missions require an agent with a unique set of skills, possessing not just bravery but an ability to melt even the most villanious heart. This is a job for C.I.Ape! Oh no. C.I.Ape stars Sophia Alongi, Skip Schwink, Madelyn Kientz, Leah N.H. Philpott, and Scott Anthony Gould as the voice of Sam. Thankfully watching the trailer is free, but please don't give any of your money to this abomination.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ali Zamani's C.I.Ape, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
