It's ape vs. helicopter (really!) in 1st Rise of The Apes trailer

FINALLY, we get to see what Rise of the Planet of the Apes is really all about! The taste we got from those behind-the-scenes pics and the few seconds of FX only had us hungrier for something a bit more substantial—and now the first official trailer is here!

The film stars Andy Serkis as the rebellious ape Caesar, James Franco as the scientist who messes with things humanity wasn't meant to mess with, and a whole bunch of CGI apes who, based on this trailer, will scare the @#$! out of us.

Check it out below.

So what do you think?

Rise of the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters Aug. 5, 2011.
