If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Yesterday, 20th Century Fox began it's media blitz for 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' - a prequel reboot to their 2001 reboot of 'Planet of the Apes' (yes, the Mark Wahlberg one). Releasing a short teaser first, then a livecast event with WETA digital, finally today we have the full trailer for the film, which is set in modern day and reveals the origins of the Chimpocalypse:
Set in present day San Francisco, "RotPotA" is a "reality-based cautionary tale where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy". With the help of the uber-brilliant visual effects house WETA Digital (of "Lord of the Rings" and "King Kong" fame), this film marks the first time that the apes will be fully CG instead of actors in monkey suits.
