Rise of the Planet of the Apes - First official trailer.

Well, as Franklin J. Schaffner's original Planet of the Apes remains one of my favourite movies I approach this latest take on the series with some trepidation. After all, who can forget Tim Burton's lacklustre remake? Also, with the contemporary popularity of all things CGI we could be on the verge of another I Am Legend - stylish set up, impressive realisation of an abandoned city and then...oh, they're cartoon creatures.

Having said that, this first official trailer for Rupert Wyatt's prequel to the original looks promising. With James Franco, Brian Cox, Freida Pinto and the marvellous Andy Serkis doing his monkey business fingers are definitely crossed that this movie will deliver the goods.


  1. Just watched the Tim Burton one. Hope this is better. By a lot

  2. Likewise, that was such a let down.This one definitely has potential so I live in hope.
