Tyler Labine tried to warn us
that Rise of the Planet of the Apes
would make us cry, but we didn’t listen. And now it’s too late. Andy Serkis
presents the emotional clip above of Caesar the chimp protecting his Alzheimer’s suffering friend played by John Lithgow
. Can’t says I blame him. I’d be ripshit too if I saw someone messing with John Lithgow.
It goes without saying that the CG work is breathtaking. It must have cost a fortune. So much so that they couldn’t afford to comb Andy Serkis’s hair. But that’s beside the point, the movie looks like it will be heartbreaking. But also awesome. Did you see that chimp parkour off that jerk neighbor’s face?! Also, he spends his free time building a model of the Statue Of Liberty. Also cool!
Bravo, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I’m definitely seeing this when it opens August 5th, even if every plot point has probably already been shown in the trailers. (Yahoo)
