Fascinating behind the scenes featurette on the some of special effects in the new hit film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Those folks at WETA sure are masters at what they do!

Rise of the Apes is on track to take $50 million in its opening weekend. Earnings which will easily grant it the number one spot at the box office, well ahead of The Smurfs ($18 million) and Cowboys and Aliens ($15 million). Has a new Planet of the Apes franchise been born? We give that question an affirmative ape howl! The coming decade shall be full of talking, CGI apes.
These trailers are slowly winning us over. Especially this latest international one. Of course, as massive fans of the Planet of the Apes franchise, it wasn’t the hardest thing to do.
The first half of the trailer is too Franco-phony. But the end finally gets apetastic. We’re quite skeptical about this film, but we’re warming … a bit.
