New, Spoiler-Filled Footage From “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”

It seems 20th Century Fox is hellbent on selling Rise of the Planet of the Apes and they don’t care how much of the movie is spoiled in doing so. The above clips are almost exclusively from the third act of the movie, with major action beats and character moments being spoiled. If this footage gets you excited to see the whole movie, be aware the first two acts are pretty much straight drama with the monkey-action kicking in only for the final third.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens on August 5th, 2011
