After that Tim Burton catastrophy, I’m welcoming Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes with open arms.

I don’t know if that means the only people taking this flick seriously is the online community or if people still feel stung by Marky Mark; personally, I’m a little disappointed that Delroy Lindo won’t be screaming about sesame cakes in another killer ape flick.
Today, a new UK quad and a few TV spots were released for the film, which will get its stateside release on August 5. Check after the break for the spots, entitled Exceeds, One Subject and Miracle.
