I'm not going to lie, the new trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes actually looks pretty cool, even if the animation of the main ape isn't quite convincing.
I'm still not sold on the idea that showing us how the apes took over Earth is necessary, though. It seems to take away from the power of the original's now iconic ending. But I'll go in with an open mind.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens August 5.
