20th Century Fox has unleashed a full new trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes courtesy of Yahoo Movies. Check it out in the video player down below and sound off. The film will star James Franco, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and David Oyelowo. Helmer Rupert Wyatt led the direction based on a screenplay by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa. Peter Jackson's WETA was charged with the special effects of the simians.
Plot Concept: Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of "Avatar" and "Lord of the Rings" is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence.
