Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Sneak Peek

A new social order is about to take place threatening humans in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” starring James Franco, Freida Pinto and Tom Felton. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” breaks new grounds in movie-making tech using photorealistic apes instead of actors in costumes. The movie will use the same techniques from James Cameron’s legendary “Avatar”. Will Rodman is caught in the middle of an epic battle where man and primate meet. As a scientist working for a pharmaceutical corporation, Will is developing a benign virus that restores damaged human brain tissue - which might be a cure for Alzheimer’s disease that afflicts his father. When Will’s research test subjects suddenly display bizarrely aggressive behavior, the company shuts down his program. Read on to catch the trailer after the break.

Will finds himself charged with an overlooked newborn male chimpanzee, Caesar, which is the most promising of his test subjects. Will secretly raises young Caesar as his own at home while caring for his ailing father. As the story progresses, he becomes more of a person and less of a scientist. This in turn leads Will to Caroline, a primatologist who serves as Caesar’s vet, and who becomes a key player in both their lives.

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes is about our civilization reaching a point of no return” says director Rupert Wyatt. “Events unfold through the eyes of Caesar, a super-intelligent chimpanzee who at a young age sees humans as being capable of wonderful things, like art and reason. And then he begins to see humanity’s dark side – oppression, bigotry, and the ostracizing of what and who we don’t understand. Another key theme is humanity’s hubris – our arrogance in thinking that we can twist, push, cheat, or circumvent the laws of nature, without consequences. The movie pits humans against nature – and against themselves – leading to a resolution that sees humans and apes on the path that will take them to a new and shocking world order.”

“The film taps into our most primal fear of the Alpha of our planet being usurped – literally letting another species take over the world – and asks how would that play out" concludes Rupert Wyatt.

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” opens in more than 100 screens across the Philippines starting August 4, 2011.
