20th Century Fox’s resuscitation of the Planet of the Apes franchise has brought another trailer that better reveals the story behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The Rupert Wyatt-directed film stars James Franco and opens Aug. 5. There will be high expectations, considering that the 1968 Charlton Heston original was so unforgettable for moviegoers old enough to remember it. And the Tim Burton-directed remake in 2001 was so disappointing.
