Were you able to catch the WETA Apes Revealed Livestream earlier today for the upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes? We did and have to say things are looking to be shaping up nicely for the Rupert Wyatt-directed film. The trailer is debuting on Apple tonight at midnight (PT), and to help raise anticipation further, 20th Century Fox has released a super-short teaser of it.
You can check it out below, and then come back later tonight/early tomorrow morning for the full thing along with some excerpts from the chat.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis as Caesar. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark are producing for Chernin Entertainment under its pact with Fox. Wyatt is directing from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who are also producing.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters everywhere August 5, 2011.
A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other — and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence and epic battles on which rest the upended destinies of man and primate.
