From FOX comes the first footage for the upcoming Rise of the Apes Movie. This is actually just a very brief showcase of the WETA special FX with a full preview being released on Wednesday. Of course when that happens we will have it here to share with you all.
In the film’s story, 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. It 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 & Amanda Silver, who are also producing.
RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES opens in theaters everywhere August 5, 2011.
