Cinema Con, formerly known as ShoWest, is currently going down in Las Vegas and in addition to screening a ton of footage from upcoming movies, many studios are premiering photos and posters from their upcoming films. 20th Century Fox, for example, created a calendar for the event and it provides our first look at several of their upcoming movies including Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, Alexander Payne’s The Descandants, Andrew Niccol’s Now, David Gordon Green’s The Sitter, David Frankel’s The Big Year and more. Plus, though we’ve already seen one image from Rise of the Apes, we now have our first official look at one of the title characters. Check all these images out below.
/Film editor Peter Sciretta took these images at CinemaCon. Click on each for a bigger version.

Hopefully Fox releases the high res versions of some of these images soon, especially the Rise of the Apes image. Even from this small image, though the CGI by Weta looks incredible and I’m very much looking forward to seeing it in motion. However, I was under the impression the apes were going to be more simian like but this image looks decidedly more human. What do you all think?
