Or what I should have titled this article, Watch a Four Second Clip of a Creepy Ape. WETA , probably best known for they’re mind-blowingly awesome effects for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has released this uber short clip of a CGI animated ape for the upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Like I said, it’s short, but really freakin’ creepy with the realistic and life-like ape. It’s a far, far departure from the apes of old with their plastic masks and Pac-man like mouths.
We know these apes won’t be talking but it’ll be fascinating to see how much expression and emotion they’ll be able to animate on their faces. Here’s hoping their fellow human actors will be able to emote just as convincingly.
