Two words, kids. Holy and shit. The official trailer for Fox’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes is here, and while we’re sold on its content, we’re not so sure you guys are going to be thrilled with the excessive CGI. Watch it and sound off!

The film 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. Rupert 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.

    I swear on my child, I just saw the trailer for Rise tonight and I THOUGHT it was a cheesy commercial. I thought it was Go Daddy or Verizon, SOMETHING, other than a movie trailer. When it kept going on and on and on, I realized there was no punchline, it wasn’t an ad, it was a trailer for something with pissed off CGI monkeys…then came the title. Wow. It’s going to be bad. I’d bet my house on it.

    CGI = special f/x that simply aren’t too special. Perhaps the only special involved is the retarded producer who pushes their use. I guess it`s his special need.

    P.S. This series was complete properly long ago, no more remakes or sequels required.

    Give me a marathon of the classic APES movies over this rehashed garbage.

    I liked it better when it was assumed the apes evolved into more intelligent beings. Kind of takes all the fun out of it to make it another science experiment gone wrong scenario.

    And would a bunch of apes really be able to take over? I mean, we have guns. Eh, this looks dumb. What a waste of money.

    • MagusMaleficus

      That’s my biggest gripe with this prequel. So intelligent monkeys somehow beat humanity? There damn well better be scenes of monkeys piloting jets and carrying rocket launchers or this movie can suck a dick.

        LOL Seriously, I want the final scene to be an ape in a suit sweating over whether or not to push the big red button and nuke all of humanity to hell. The rest of the apes hide out in bunkers, then he presses it.

        Oh, and there’s no way this movie will be as cool as this:
