Yesterday we got a sneak peak at some new WETA footage for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and today the trailer for the film has finally arrived. I have to admit I was impressed by the casting and I am a fan of this new trailer. I am not sold on how they are going to convince us on ‘apes taking over’ but I look forward to seeing how it unfolds.
John Lithgow plays James Francos father who is stricken with Alzheimers which is the basis for the entire chimp uprising. In the film James Franco plays a young scientist looking for a cure who inadvertently turns his apes into super intelligent revolutionary apes. Freida Pinto who starred in Slumdog Millionaire is the female lead playing a primatologist.
