Rise of the Planet of the Apes Trailer

Here is the first teaser for Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Now, normally, we’d all complain that this is a remake of a prequel to a beloved sci fi movie. But in this briefest of teasers, all we really get is the basic plot and James Franco. We don’t see much of Caeser (played by Andy Serkis!), which is the pivotal ape to the film, and based on the previous movie, well it seems that the science drama would take up about 2/3rds of the action. The ape revolt, the rise if you will, will probably be the final denouement here. But that’s okay. This looks alright — except for calling the new drug “the cure.” That just seems ridiculous.

The big thing is there isn’t anything egregious to complain about.
