Director: Rupert Wyatt
An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE 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-winning visual effects house WETA Digital-employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for ''Avatar'' rendered, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.
Will Rodman (James Franco), a scientist working in GenSys, a state-of-the-art laboratory, is desperate to find a cure for Alzheimers, since his father ( John Lithgow) is fast succumbing to it. He develops a wonder drug, ALZ 112 and tries it on chimpanzees
