APE-ocalypse Now!

You may recall that I thought the teaser trailer for the upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes did a nice job of playing things close to the chest while still setting the stage for the "rise" promised by its title. Well, the new full trailer, just released yesterday, goes a bit further, giving us plenty of man v. monkey action, but also showing the circumstances that lead up to all the poop flying, including more with Caesar, the hyper-intelligent chimp played by Andy Serkis (and by Roddy McDowall in 1972's Conquest of the Planet of the Apes -- the thematic inspiration for this installment). Really liking the vibe on this, and hope it signals good things come August 5.
