On August 5, apes will rise! At least at your local theater. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a curious film as it is not really a remake of 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, making it not part of the original Apes film continuity, nor is it a prequel to Tim Burton’s 2001 Planet of the Apes film. Still, it looks to be a pretty great film and should be a worthy new addition to the Apes film franchise, perhaps starting a franchise of its own. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!!
