One of the surprise hits from 2011 was the reboot of The Planet of the Apes which featured fantastic work from Andy Serkis as the lead ape, Ceasar. He took his Gollum and King Kong roles to a whole new level as far as I’m concerned. Well now he’s back as the sequel prepares to launch next summer… and here is the first look at the teaser trailer:
I’ll put it this way:
The movie could very well be awesome and I’m very excited for it to get released. I’ll likely be there opening weekend.
But this isn’t the strongest trailer ever.
Gary Oldman voice-over? Check. Ominous images of forests? Double check. Daunting simians ready to pounce? Look out!
I don’t know what I wanted. But this really wasn’t it.
But I’ll still be there for sure.
