Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (originally titled Caesar and Rise of the Apes) is an upcoming 2011 American science fiction film. The film is directed by Rupert Wyatt. It is a reboot of the Planet of the Apes series that will act as a foundation with an origin story for a new film series.

Plot: Will Rodman (James Franco), currently residing in San Francisco, is working on a cure for Alzheimer’s by performing tests on apes. The first test subject is a chimpanzee, named Caesar (Andy Serkis), whose parents had been captured in Africa. Rodman’s “cure” genetically modifies Caesar’s way of thinking to create a new breed of ape with human-like intelligence. Caesar learns unbelievably well, but human authority orders him to be locked up. However, he eventually proves smart enough to escape from his cage and releases an airborne-strain of the cure among thousands of other apes (the ones that are caged with him), increasing their intelligence, like Caesar. Thousands of apes begin to foment revolution. Soon, war breaks out between humans and apes. Rodman may be the only one able to stop them before the ape revolution ends with the apes succeeding, humanity being driven to extinction, and apes becoming the most dominant species on Earth.
