Though we've had at least a couple of trailers for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, now comes one specifically targeted at us Brits (particularly given the release date mentioned). Take a look below.

No, it doesn’t try to shoehorn in the classic PG Tips chimps or insert a shot of Big Ben into the background of the big battle scene, but this new promo does offer up some fresh footage, particularly focused on Will (James Franco)’s relationship with his father (John Lithgow), the driving force behind his research into Alzheimer’s and other brain problems.

We get to see how chemically-tinkered chimp Caesar (Andy Serkis) bonds with the family, and how he’s more than willing to do anything to protect Lithgow when the moment calls for it. We also get more with Tom Felton, channelling his darker side once more as the son of Brian Cox’s brutal simian sanctuary owner.

But there’s also plenty of chimp action, and a chance for Caesar and co to go bananas (sorry).

With Rupert Wyatt directing, Rise of the Planet of the Apes will swing into UK cinemas on August 12.
