Rise of the Planet of the Apes - film trailer

Rise of the Planet of the Apes poster

SET in present day San Francisco Rise of the Planet of the Apes reveals the origins of how Earth became a planet of the apes. The plot tells how man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

The film stars James Franco, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and John Lithgow. And thanks to Oscar®-winning visual effects house WETA Digital – employing some of the ground breaking technologies developed for “Avatar” – will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.
