Fox has just released a brand new trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and I really like what I see. Some of the FX are obviously not completely finished, but the stuff that seems to be fully done is remarkable.
In fact the only thing I’m concerned about now is James Franco, a choice for lead who has always struck me as odd. Now he strikes me as sort of wrong. I’m hoping he finds a way to make his own weirdness work in the character.
But fucking hell, new Caesar looks great. And the action at the end looks terrific and just the right level. Of course it’s also kind of a spoiler - that stuff on the Golden Gate is the end of the movie - but all of the X-Men: First Class trailers were similarly heavy on the final battle and that film turned out fine.
