Trailer: The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I smell trouble here as we get our look at the first trailer for Rupert Wyatt's The Rise of the Planet of the Apes (20th Century Fox, 8.5), a prequel to the 1968 science-fiction classic. 

First off, the decision to bring in WETA (shamelessly and awkwardly given a prominent title card in the trailer) to digital create the apes seems silly to me, given the stellar, flawless make-up job that Tim Burton and his crew did on the otherwise dreadful 2001 remake. 
I think this is a bad direction to go in and will most likely just reiterate what we all know, and that's the fact that this series has simply run its course.
