Rise of The Planet of The Apes: More clips than you could throw a monkey at! All fairly spoilerish.

In the summer of 2011 no film truly feels like it’s arrived unless there at least 50 trailers and clips released before hand, and a fair few after too. Rise of The Planet of The Apes is no exception. Whilst the film had a need to showcase its motion capture technology, in order to convince audiences that this was a truly groundbreaking film, in terms of the character depth the apes, Caesar especially, were being given, it feels like a very risky strategy.

The title alone gives away the entire film, it’s the details that give you any reason to watch the film at all; so in giving away so many of those details in trailers, clips and showcases are Fox in danger of turning away more punters than they draw in? There's 2 new clips and 2 that have been around for a while.

Watch at your peril, there’s nothing here that hasn’t been hinted at in the trailers, but as I say above, the devil is in the details.

Integrate him...


Too close...
