Earlier today, Yahoo Movies posted the exclusive debut of the new RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES theatrical trailer online, giving us our first look at a very expanded preview of the film.
Most notably, many new and completed effects shots of the hybrid chimpanzee Caesar (performed by Andy Serkis) show off the character’s genetically-enhanced intelligence. The ape’s intellect has been artificially engineered by GenSys researcher Will Rodman (James Franco) as a medical subject testing the effect of his new treatment for Alzheimer’s: a chemical designed to actually repair failing or damaged brain function in humans. But once Rodman witness its positive effects on apes, he secretly brings home an enhanced-chimp offspring, Caesar, who matures into a most formidable creature which soon lives beyond Rodman’s control. As the trailer claims, evolution becomes revolution as Caesar leads the lab apes in an organized revolt against their scientific captors. Will a new species rise to rule the planet?
