One of my favorite movie franchises has always been Planet of the Apes and then Tim Burton got a hold of it. After ten years of healing, Hollywood is ready to take another look at the series with Rise of The Planet of the Apes.

The story is taking a different approach to the 1960’s film.  This movie is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

The apes are CGI in the film, but are played by actors using the motion capture filming that was used in James Cameron’s Avatar. Andy Serkis,who played Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogies, stars as Caesar.

It also stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, and David Oyelowo. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is in theaters August 5th.
