Trailer #2: Rise of the Planet of the Apes


Man, August 5th is going to be a great day for PETA. They get to see a multitude of apes, scarred by human drug testing, rise up against the oppressive human-ocracy. A gorilla is liable to crack open Brian Cox’s head and scoop the brains out with his freakish, opposable thumb-less hands. Ooh, yes please. At least this trailer explains how Caesar, the altered super-smart monkey with performance capture work from Andy Serkis, gets the other apes to smarten up and follow his commands. Rather than the last one, which was more “MONKEY GET SMART, GORILLA ATTACK HELICOPTER.”

I keep trying to be all blase about this, but I know I’m going to be there opening night, giggling my ass off at the monkeys. I need to not be a ten year old when it comes to monkeys versus humans.
