I searched for one, but could find no threads relating to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, formally known as Rise of the Apes.
So, anyone else excited for this? Iíve been an avid Planet of the Apes follower since I saw the first film years ago. This film has me intrigued, as itís basically showing how it all happened.
Anyway, the main reason why I created this thread was because the first trailer is scheduled to come out this week. However, today a small (5 seconds) piece of footage was posted. Itís of the main chimpanzee character, Caesar. Now, this is truly jaw-dropping, as all the apes are being rendered in CGI. Look at this and tell me if thatís not some of the best CGI youíve seen to date. Already an Oscar contender, IMO:
I was a bit apprehensive when I first heard the apes were going to be CGI, but this footage has really put my mind at ease. Canít wait for the trailer.
