In one of the most expensive and longest PETA ads ever committed to film, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" will hit theaters later this summer with two messages: don't mess with John Lithgow and don't fuck with his ape.
A new international trailer for the film has arrived and hasn't solved any of the problems of its predecessors [insert your own evolution joke]. It still looks cornball campy has hell, with James Franco seemingly channeling his role as Franco on "General Hospital" into a vague Science Doctor type in this film. At least they finally tell us that "the cure" is for Alzheimer's. Or it was, until it made apes go fucking crazy and mobilize into helicopter-smashing armies.
Anyway, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" hits on August 5th. Be nice to your local primates and check out the trailer below. [via ComingSoon]
