The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is so far notable for its comically long title and the involvement of James Franco, but it turns out they’ve got some pretty impressive special effects up their sleeves as well, thanks to the wonderful wizards at WETA. So next time you’ve got four seconds free, check out the video. You’ll notice that around the one-second mark, the ape starts turning his head to the side.
In seriousness, even though the video is ridiculously short, it’s still pretty impressive. I’ve watched it like 68 times and the ape seems weirdly human each time. Can’t wait until this shot shows up in the movie, so I can yell out “there it is!” in the theater and everyone will love me. (ComingSoon)
