20th Century Fox have released three new clips from Rupert Wyatt’s highly anticipated prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The footage focuses on the beginning of the Apes takeover of man. The movie hits theaters this August 5th in the US and August 11th in the UK. Rise of the Planet of the Apes stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Tom Felton, Tyler Labine, Brian Cox & Andy Serkis. Hit the jump to check them out.
"An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. The film is a reality-based cautionary tale — a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind’s hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Oscar(R)-winning visual effects house WETA Digital – employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for “Avatar” – will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors."
