WETA teases James Franco’s CGI “Apes”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: WETA, the special effects house working on this summer’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” has given us a brief look at a CGI rendition of the apes.

How brief? Try 5 seconds. But it’s enough to hint at how realistic these computer-generated characters will look.

We have come a long way from the damn, dirty apes of Charlton Heston’s days … which is good and bad. There’s something to be said for the costumed simians who’ve taken over our planet in the sci-fi classics of the 1960s and ’70s.

But the rise of technology should benefit “Rise,” a prequel story starring James Franco and WETA spokesmodel Andy Serkis as the main ape.

Check out the footage below, and be sure to sign up to the film’s Facebook page for future updates.
