Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a 2011 American science fiction film directed by Rupert Wyatt and starring James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo, and Andy Serkis. Written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, it is 20th Century Fox's reboot of the Planet of the Apes series, intended to act as an origin story for a new series of films. Its premise is similar to the fourth film in the original series, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972), but it is not a direct remake of that film. In the film, a substance designed to help the brain repair itself gives advanced intelligence to a chimpanzee named Caesar, who leads an ape uprising. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was released on August 5, 2011, to critical and commercial success. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. It was also nominated for five Saturn Awards including Best Director for Wyatt and Best Writing for Jaffa and Silver, winning Best Science Fiction Film, Best Supporting Actor for Serkis and Best Special Effects. Serkis's performance as Caesar was widely acclaimed, earning him many nominations from associations which do not usually recognize performance capture as traditional acting. A sequel to the film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, was released on July 11, 2014, and a third film, War for the Planet of the Apes, was released on July 14, 2017.

[first lines]

Robert Franklin:
[administering chimp intelligence test] Okay, okay. Here you go. And let's go again. [gives Bright Eyes treat and clocks timer]

Will Rodman:
Which one's this? Number nine?

Robert Franklin:
Yeah, this is number nine. Bright Eyes, we call her. Are you watching this? This is unbelievable. [Bright Eyes does the tower fast] Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Bright Eyes:
[grabs treat and eats it]

Will Rodman:
How many moves was that?

Robert Franklin:
20. [Will looks at them and starts to head out] Yeah, a perfect score is 15. Doc, what are you giving her?

Will Rodman:
[heads out] Hey, give that video! [runs out the hallway and opens the door to Steven Jacobs' office] Chimp number nine, just one dose.

Steven Jacobs:
[looks at Will and holds a phone down] Aren't I seeing you later?

Will Rodman:
[puts file on desk] We're good to go.

Steven Jacobs:
I'm going to call you back. Yeah, all right. Thanks. Bye.

Will Rodman:
The 112. It works. [walks to a large screen]

Steven Jacobs:
On just the one primate.

Will Rodman:
One is all we need. Full cognitive recorvery. We're ready.

Steven Jacobs:
Look are you sure you're not rushing this?

Will Rodman:
I've been working on this for five and a half years. The data is clear. We're ready, Steven. All I need is your approval for human trials.

Steven Jacobs:
For this, you're going to need the board's approval. There's alot of money riding on this, Will. You only get one shot.

Will Rodman:
One shot is all I need.

Steven Jacobs:
[sighing] All right. But I'll need to see all the research.

Will Rodman:
[bangs on the desk] You got it.

Steven Jacobs:
And, Will...

Will Rodman:
Yeah?

Steven Jacobs:
Keep your personal emotions out of it. These people invest in results, not dreams.

Will Rodman:
Okay. [leaves office]
