A big round of applause to Devin Faraci over at Badass Digest for the heads up on this very impressive international trailer for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
As Devin wisely pointed out, this trailer shows us the first real glimpses of Caesar as a character. I particularly dig that scene with him and John Lithgow after a confrontation. Everything I see about this film just makes me wish that August 5th was already here.
A big thanks to Yahoo! Movies for the new trailer, August 5th cannot get here quick enough! I love the scene where Caesar is ‘building’ his army…
…at the 1:50 mark…did an Ape just throw an axe or a parking meter?! Either way that is so awesome!! I believe that 20th Century Fox has a hit on their hands if the movie can deliver what the trailer is promising. Considering that Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, which this new film is certainly loosely based on, is possibly my favorite of the franchise, it should mean a lot when I say that what I am seeing here is making me quite happy.
