James Franco and Freida Pinto stars in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a new film in the Planet of the Apes series. This takes place as a prequel to the first remake.

I wasn’t a big fan of the first Planet of the Apes movie, but this one looks surprisingly good. Freida Pinto FTW!!

[quote]A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other — and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence, and epic battles on which rest the upended destinies of man and primate.[endquote]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits theatres August 5, 2011.
