Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) Plot & Synopsis

Advertisement

Starring Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Ty Olsson, Terry Notary, Mike Dopud

Directed by Rupert Wyatt

The Planet of the Apes franchise gets the origin treatment in this 20th Century Fox production from director Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist). The script, written by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa, concerns a group of American scientists whose genetic experiments lead to an uprising by a race of intelligent apes that they helped create. James Franco stars, with Freida Pinto and John Lithgow heading up the rest of the cast.

Synopsis: At the story's heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug's creator, Will Rodman (James Franco) and a primatologist Caroline Aranha (Freida Pinto), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned in an ape sanctuary in San Bruno. Seeking justice for his fellow inmates, Caesar gives the fellow apes the same drug that he inherited. He then assembles a simian army and escapes the sanctuary - putting man and ape on a collision course that could change the planet forever.

Tagline: Evolution Becomes Revolution

Storyline: A substance designed to help the brain repair itself gives advanced intelligence to a chimpanzee who leads an ape uprising.
