First Trailer For 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'

We got a short look at WETA's digitally created Apes earlier this week, and now 20th Century Fox has released its first trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

The film stars James Franco as a scientist whose experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

The rest of the cast includes Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto (photosFreida Pinto photos), John Lithgow, Brian Cox, and Tom Felton.

Since you wouldn't have known it by seeing the CGI apes, WETA promotes itself as the digital studio's behind Avatar in the trailer.

The film has a release date of August 5, 2011.
