Stare into the CG eyes of the super intelligent ape that dooms the human race. Here's the first look at how actor Andy Serkis will appear as Caesar in Rise of the Apes, the Planet of the Apes origins tale.


ComingSoon has a great look at the face of Caesar, the leader of the apes and bane of humanity's existence. In Rupert Wyatt's Planet of the Apes origins tale, James Franco plays Will Rodman, a scientist who experiments on the Ape Caesar, played by Andy Serkis. The genetic engineering by Rodman and other scientists end up creating a race of super smart apes, who eventually turn the tables on human beings. The movie is set in modern-day San Francisco. We've seen Serkis in a mo-cap suit before, but this is our first actual look at his computer-generated ape face.


Rise of the Apes will be in theaters August 5th, 2011.
