The rise of the teaser trailer for THE RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
What a stupid title! Rise of the Apes was fine (and even Caesar before that) but I guess the marketing department decided that not having "planet" in the title would make it impossible for people to associate this film with the "Planet of the Apes" franchise (as Bill Hicks would say, if you work in advertising go home and kill yourself).
Anyway, enough about the stupid title. The teaser trailer was released today after a live event WETA DIGITAL did last night to talk about how they plan to create the apes in the film (you can watch part of it here).
Here is the trailer:
And here is some concept art:
