    Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the new prequel movie to the classic Planet of the Apes series. Starring James Franco, Rise is an origin story of how the apes became intelligent

    Expected release date is August, 2011.

    I can't help but wonder if they will touch upon the original origins story, of apes being used as domestic servants as shown on screen in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, instead of just being lab experiments that escape.

    Between this movie and the re-imagined Planet of the Apes remake with Mark Wahlberg a few years back, there is a very real chance of the Apes mythology being totally fragmented.

    can't say i'm too excited about this trailer. I kinda liked the story in the original films.
    Affraid this one is just another 'experiment gone wrong' movie...

    Exactly! They made a shiny movie with lots of special-effects but dumbed down the premise.

    I prefer a good story over special-effects.

    This is one of the best sci-fi movies I've seen this summer. I like this film much more than the remake of The Planet of the Apes.
