The new trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes first tries to kill you with kindness. Then, about halfway through, it tries to kill you with really, really angry monkeys.
Whereas the first domestic trailer showed a more cold and clinical side to the apes’ upbringing, for international audiences, this video seems to channel its inner Harry and the Hendersons, even going so far as to cast John Lithgow as a loving father. There’s a fine line between “homage” and “rip-off,” and you’re walkin’ it, Apes.
This trailer also shows us that Draco Malf-, I mean, Tom Felton, can be completely menacing without his greasy blonde hair. So long as he’s shown electrocuting a cute monkey.
Beyond that, you won’t glean much any new plot elements, but if you’re looking for tons of plot elements in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, you might be on a fool’s errand.
