I'm jumping the gun on this one day early just to set up this thread. I have no idea if the teaser will be "awesome" or not -- but I hope it is. Anyway, post your thoughts starting tomorrow, and remember, "Man is a walking pestilence."

Aside from the performances and that doozy of a third act when the apes break free and run amok in San Francisco, I didn't really care for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I'm curious how this one will look, though, and may check it out if I like what I see from the trailers.

I was so disappointed in Tim Burton's "reimagined" version of the original, and it seemed at the time that Fox would lay any further Apes sequels or prequels to rest for good. "Rise" was an unexpected surprise, and I liked it a lot. It will be very interesting to see where they take it from there.

Interesting, but I think it's too short to really get any idea about the picture.
I look forward to seeing more...

I'll probably wait for Dawn of the POTA to be on blu-ray before seeing it, I saw Rise in the theater and although it's not a bad movie, it's not a good 'planet of the apes' movie; To me the first four planet of the apes movies are what made me appreciate the franchise, everything that followed failed to capture the spirit and fun of those movies, and dare I say the sneakiness of the political undertones. "Rise" left me wanting a lot more, I doubt Dawn will step it up this time.

As one who is a huge fan of the original movies and felt that Burton's movie was a pile of monkey faeces I was not looking forward to Rise of the PotA. But I thought it was a brilliant movie, truly astonishing. I thought the climax was a tad rushed and there were waaay too many apes at the end (seriously how many apes are there in 'Frisco?).

So personally I cannot wait for Dawn of the PotA!

I still hate the title though.... Dawn comes before Rise doesn't it?? b

I hope it's good, I thought Rise was the best apes film since the original one.

As long as there is no dawn of the programmers that can deliver proper and convincing CGI, my interest in any new Pota-film will not rise.

D.S.
