Awesome, it's gonna be a great movie. This is the type of CGI that Green Lantern needs.

I'm thinking sleeper hit of the summer...looks great

I guess man against chimps and monkeys is better than Zombies. At least our numbers won't go down while theirs double lol.
MrFrost - 6/2/2011, 3:21 PM
It is interesting to note the similarities between this story and that of the human race.
HenryV - 6/2/2011, 3:23 PM
It looks totally awesome
Deadpool813 - 6/2/2011, 3:27 PM
Awesome cant wait to see this! But we just saw the whole movie! And we all know the ending! =(
DarthTesla - 6/2/2011, 3:31 PM
That looks awesome!

Pissed off super apes invasion would be WAY scarier than a Zombie apocalypse.

Best or most realistic CGI ever seen, I reckon. Even taking into account the low resolution of the trailer hosted on this site, the apes look real. This is another huge leap forward in CGI. This is another groundbreaking CGI film, for sure. Let's hope the rest of the film (plot, acting etc) is good too. :)

LOL - 6/2/2011, 3:38 PM
...about as unrealistic as it can get. While the original film was a tad campy, nothing still beats that classic.

Here is the whole movie in one paragraph summary:

"Man tries to play god through experiments. Experiment works, but then backfires right in Man's face. Experiments try to take over the world unrealistically (cue shots of Man's national monuments being destroyed to make us "care" about said destruction in their arrogance - Man is the supposed bad guy somewhere in all this, and while we cheer for the Apes, Man gets kicked in the between the balls as thanks for their trouble), but in the end there will always be hope that Man will rise again in the far future as possible sequels deal with the aftermath, etc. And if we're not stupid enough, the sequels will most likely detail how Man will become the good guy as the roles will reverse and some Apes will join them fighting for equality for all species."

- THAT is the whole movie in a nutshell, an Apocalypse movie with Apes.

And somewhere down the line if sequels are confirmed, we'll see something like THIS again:

I wonder if the apes talk at some point in the movie, because neither of the trailers have shown any indication of that.
patriautism - 6/2/2011, 3:42 PM
What's up with every movie rising? I am not usually one to bitch, but they should really change the name, it's too much of a mouthful.
How about Planet of Man? Planet of the Humans? Rise of the Apes?

nuck82 - 6/2/2011, 3:44 PM
wow not at all what i thought it was going to be, looks kinda good, not sure yet
dreddhead123 - 6/2/2011, 3:44 PM
And the CGI was done using an old Playstation 1 console. Amazing what you can do with old tech! :P
lxgnzls1 - 6/2/2011, 3:53 PM
love it
McGribble - 6/2/2011, 4:01 PM
Arminies, I do not think it is either. I think this is a new direction. Dare I say... reboot...

It does look really good though. I do hope the speak by the end of the movie.

@ckal, yeah a bit long in the tooth for a title. "Rise of the Apes" would have worked. Or Planet of the Apes as the main title and the rise of ceasar as the sub text.
doc - 6/2/2011, 4:07 PM
Does Grif always have to be SUCH a tool?
ABLEE337 - 6/2/2011, 4:13 PM
Looks like iRobot with apes.
Maia87 - 6/2/2011, 4:28 PM
I was impressed by the special effects in the first short trailer but now, meh...

The apes just looks too 'cartoonish'.

I mean King Kong from Weta/Peter Jackson was a badass, great computer-generated character. He looked so big, so real, so "alive". It's worked because King Kong was an UNSEEN creature : a giant prehistoric gorilla, something you never saw of your life.

These baboons/chimps are supposed to be real animals living in zoos/laboratories/center or whatever but sorry they looks FAKE and far away from real living chimps!

I think Weta needs more time for the special effects on this movie.
Bandrews1 - 6/2/2011, 4:35 PM
Damn this looks really good.
BlackSands - 6/2/2011, 4:37 PM
@Arminies, they are classifying it as a Reboot with a whole "new storyline" and "History". The main plot, however, is so overdone to death with that there is only so much you can do with a franchise like this that it becomes repetitive no matter how much they try to change it.

@LOL, LMAO at your picture. A little disturbing though.
CaptainDC - 6/2/2011, 4:38 PM
Now this looks like a GREAT movie
bixby4u - 6/2/2011, 4:47 PM
You can complain about the CGI, but it looks so much better than some of the crap that comes out today.
NeoBaggins - 6/2/2011, 4:50 PM
This film will showcase the limited concept of Planet of the Apes and most likely put a nail in the franche's coffin. Forever.
Maia87 - 6/2/2011, 4:51 PM
It's a total REBOOT with new characters and new ideas/stories.

I don't think we'll ever see talking/civilised/clothed apes like in the original movies.

Rise of the... seems to be more realistic.
skullboy - 6/2/2011, 4:55 PM
I am so there.
level1paladin - 6/2/2011, 4:58 PM
Looks fan[frick]ingtastic. Planet of the Apes movies are among the best in Sci-Fi history. They have that great Roddenberry-esque human dilemma thing going on.

"Conquest" and "Battle For" are my favorite, so it'll be great to see a modern take on the "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" themes.

CGI snobs don't understand the concept of suspension of disbelief apparently. It looks good enough for me.
Illuminatus - 6/2/2011, 5:02 PM
There are nearly seven billion humans on this planet. There are less than one million various species of apes combined.

Yeah...I think we got this.
CBMfan001 - 6/2/2011, 5:15 PM
looks good
marvel72 - 6/2/2011, 5:18 PM
should of got weta to do the avengers & not ILM,but don't get me wrong ILM are great but i would of love to see what weta would of come up with.
SonOfStarKiller - 6/2/2011, 5:24 PM

How do you know something like a nuclear holocaust doesn't happen in this movie?
EdGross - 6/2/2011, 5:33 PM
Without spoiling anything, I will say that the film does not ignore the question of the number of humans versus the number of apes on this planet.
Bodwulf - 6/2/2011, 5:55 PM
Striker! Seems like wolverine was not his only project.
LOL - 6/2/2011, 6:35 PM
@Bodwulf - it would be Ape-verine!
whoa123 - 6/2/2011, 7:29 PM
Okay I'm sold. FREEDOM FOR APES!!
TheBatman938865 - 6/2/2011, 8:54 PM
looks good...the cgi looks good...but the green lantern cgi looks more convincing ....i guess i find aliens more real lol
thereaper27 - 6/2/2011, 11:06 PM
caesar is one bad ass mother[frick]er
Maia87 - 6/3/2011, 1:41 AM
