Apes! Will! Rise!

When I saw Green Lantern on Saturday, the old Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer ran before it. I wish this new trailer had run instead, because it’s the best one yet, for three reasons: 1) it actually makes Caesar and the other apes seem like the heroes, which is pretty ballsy; 2) it reveals the awful line “We call it… The Cure” doesn’t actually exist, but is in fact “We call it the cure for Alzheimer’s” which is infinitely less awful; and 3) there’s a scene where an asshole human gives Caesar an involuntary shower with a firehose, which is a subtle but awesome call back to the original Planet of the Apes movie. Now my hopes for the movie are rising along with the planet. You may insert your own erection joke here. (Via First Showing)
