Story


An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. The film is a reality-based cautionary tale -- a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Oscar(R)-winning visual effects house WETA Digital - employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for "Avatar" - will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.

“..it's smart dumb fun, if that makes any sense (and admittedly, it might not)..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..these apes may be smart, but with the exception of Caesar, they're really just effects. They never make you wonder who the maniacs are..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..a shamelessly fun B-movie with A-movie effects..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
