Third ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Trailer Released in Light of Oscar Talk

Update: Proving my point more:

While most sites were bashing the living hell out of Twentieth Century Fox’s first teaser for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we here at Bloody Disgusting have been marveling at WETA’s special effects work that appears to have put an end to the “dead eyes” debate. With the release just a month away (Aug. 5), other mainstream sites are finally changing their tune, especially this past week when I saw multiple haters start using the word “Oscar” — shocking, I know. Fox must have taken note of the sudden change in heart as they quickly unloaded a THIRD trailer loaded with more sequences and special effects work. All hail Caesar!

Described as an origin story, Apes is set in present day San Francisco and deals with the aftermath of man’s experiments with genetic engineering that lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Franco will play a driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes.

From director Rupert Wyatt, James Franco, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Tom Felton all star.
