Rise of the Planet Apes
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (previously titled Rise of the Apes) is a 2011 American science fiction drama film directed by Rupert Wyatt, starring James Franco and Andy Serkis. It is a reboot of the Planet of the Apes series. It is intended to act as a foundation with its own origin story for a new film series. Its premise is similar to the fourth film in the original series, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972), but it is not a direct remake in that it does not fit into that series' continuity. It was released in the United States, Canada, and India on August 5, 2011. The film received positive reviews and became a box office success.
Three chimpanzees are captured in an African jungle from their troop by poachers and shipped to San Francisco. Will Rodman (James Franco) is a scientist at pharmaceutical company Gen-Sys who has been trying to develop a cure for Alzheimer's disease by testing a genetically engineered gene therapy on 12 chimps. The drug mutates the chimpanzees, giving them a human level of intelligence. The most successful subject is a female chimp named Bright Eyes (Terry Notary) goes on a rampage because she believes her baby, to whom she secretly gave birth, is threatened; she is killed while disrupting the board meeting where Will is presenting the cure. Will's boss Steven Jacobs (David Oyelowo) orders chimp handler Robert Franklin (Tyler Labine) to put all the test chimpanzees down. Franklin cannot bring himself to kill the baby chimp and instead gives him to Will.
