Full Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes trailer online

“Put those apes down...”

rise of the planet of the apes

The first full trailer for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes has landed online.

After an impressive first teaser, this longer look at the prequel focuses more on the human characters and gives us more of an idea of the film’s plot.

James Franco plays a scientist who’s looking for an Alzheimer’s cure by testing apes. But one ape, Caesar, stars to show signs of sentience.

Check out the full trailer below...

Boasting decent (though not perfect) CGI and an earnest Franco, the trailer’s second half plumps for an Inception-style blaring soundtrack as all hell breaks loose - and it’s pretty effective.

There are a slew of impressive shots of apes on the loose, as they break out and infiltrate peoples’ homes and public buildings – apparently even the Guggenheim.

It’s this part that looks the most promising, with the 'Us versus Them' conceit amped up to its fullest. Here's hoping it successfully squashes the memory of Tim Burton's dreadful stab at the franchise.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes opens 15 August 2011.

Rise? Or rubbish? What do you make of this first full trailer? Drop us your reactions below...

      Looks ok, What's with the c**p taglines though? The film title clearly lays out what happens and the movie's roots but then it has to do the whole "Apes will Rise" bit at the end. f*****g stoopid

      I actually like Tim Burton's take on the apes... However, to the point of my comment! Excited about the film but I can't help but be put off by the CGI apes. In some scenes, IT'S A HAIRY GOLLUM! I suppose I can only hope they throw a bit more money WETAs way to try and polish off the apes.

      Looks like there's gonna be a few great movies out this summer and this looks like one of them. Just hope its not like that c**p that Burton made, really wasn't a fan of that one, but it'll be good to see if it ties in with the originals.
