The world yawned when news of another Apes hit. But the trailer shows it could restore some much-needed B-movie darkness20th Century Fox has released the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which hits theaters across the country on August 5. Click on the video player below to see how these damn dirty apes evolve in this prequel, which stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, and Andy Serkis. We also have a new international quad poster for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which you can see below the trailer.
The best pulpy sci-fi speaks to our fear of what the naughty men in white coats might be getting up to in their mysterious laboratories. I really enjoyed Vincenzo Natali’s Splice last year, a tale of two scientists who create a new life form that’s not quite human and have to deal with the consequences. That film lured us in with a pseudo-realistic premisebefore dissolving into a deliciously trashy third act that threw logic to the winds. Rise of the Planet of the Apes appears to be on similar ground, except that this time around we know exactly how it’s all going to end. They rather gave it away with the name there, didn’t they?
It’s due to hit theaters August 5th, and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” just released a new teaser trailer below.
