Earlier today I got an email from the folks who are working on the upcoming Rise of the Apes movie and in it was your first sneak peak video of the upcoming Planet of the Apes: Rise of The Apes. In case you missed it the folks at WETA who are the minds behind the visuals for AVATAR and Lord of the Rings are doing the visuals for this prequel story to Planet of the Apes.
The video is sadly so short its somewhat laughable but the goal is to simply show us how good the Apes look. Checkout the footage below and tell me.. are you excited? On Wednesday an extended first look at Rise of the Apes will be released and we will of course have it here for you all.
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.
