When they announced this Planet of the Apes “preboot”, I never thought I’d actually be excited to see it. Yet each new piece of footage Fox releases fills me with hope that Rise of the Planet of the Apes will make up for it’s unnecessarily long name with a totally watchable film. In the clip, which is introduced by the master of mo-cap himself Andy Serkis, you’ll get a brief glimpse at the relationship between the ape Caesar and his caretaker Charles (played by John Lithgow), a man who is dealing with the recent onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
In addition, you can find a brand new poster (more of a banner, really) for the movie in the gallery below. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is in theaters August 4th.[/Film, via Yahoo!]
