Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Synopsis: At the story's heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug.

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.

Move along!

Are you trying

to put me out of business?

These are the skankiest, scabbiest. . .

. . .scuzziest humans I've ever seen.

-You don't want them?

-I'll take the whole lot.

I must be out of my mind.

I'll have to make it up on volume.

All right, get them out. . .

. . .and get them clean! Chop, chop!

Let's go!

Keep it moving!

Come on! Hurry up!

Gentlemen to the left!

Ladies to the right, please!

Don't be afraid.

Come on.

Very touching. I can't see

for the tears in my eyes.

Come on. That one's

crawling with lice.

Check the teeth

on that little one. Nice.

Stay back. Back!

Get in there!

Move! You too!

How many times have I told you to

wear gloves when you handle humans?

You normally hack off a limb, Limbo.

Yes, general. That's true.


they're worth more intact.

Keep your eye on this one.

He's feisty.

Were these the ones

raiding the orchards?

I know an old country remedy

that never fails.

You gut one human,

and you string the carcass up.

The Human Rights faction

is on me already.

Do-gooders. Who needs them?

I'm for free speech as long as they. . .

. . .keep their mouths shut.

My niece wants one

for her birthday.

Excellent. The little ones

make wonderful pets.

But be sure

you get rid of it by puberty.

One thing you don't want in your

house, it's a human teenager.

Any one you'd like, sweetheart.

That one.

Oh, isn't she pretty.

I'll get that for you, sir.

And I have a pretty new collar. . .

. . .just for you.

Compliments of the house.

You stink of humans.

It's disgusting

the way we treat humans.

It demeans us as much as them.

Ari, let's go.

Get them marked!

I got orders to fill!


Not you again.

I can't stand by while humans
