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. 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.

[CHIMP CHATTERS]

You lose.

Again.

I changed your flight sequence.

That's enough.

Pay attention.

Pericles, stop! Or no treat!

How well do I know you?

Hey, there you are.

Was the homo sapien mean to you?

We all know it's just rocket envy.

-Ever consider a boyfriend?

-Do I enjoy being miserable?

-I'll stick with my chimps.

LEO:
Hey.

-I'm teaching him.

-You're teasing him.

He's gene-spliced, chromosome-

enhanced. He can handle it.

When you frustrate them, they lose

focus. They even get violent.

Hey, Pericles,

you're gonna be a daddy.

-Thought I saw a smirk on his face.

-The female was the aggressor.

Hey, Leo. You got a postcard.

Leo!

It's been two years.

When are you coming home?

Not too quick.

I'm enjoying that apartment.

-No, we miss you!

-Are you flying yet?

-Or are the chimps doing the work?

-We got something to tell you.

When you gonna make

that kind of commitment--

MAN 1 :
Captain Davidson,

report to the bridge.

FRANK:
Found it.

HANSEN:
It's moving like a storm.

It is. It's an electromagnetic storm.

LEO:
The digital clocks are stopped.

MARIA:
It's beautiful.

-So is the sun till you get close.

HANSEN:
This is weird.

HANSEN:
I hear frequency patterns.

-Tune them in.

HANSEN:
It's electronic communication

from Earth, from all time.

HANSEN:

The storm's bouncing it back to us.

We'll start with a pass

through the core.

Take radiation gamma-ray reading.

Get your monkey ready.

Sir, this is a waste of time.

We have standard procedures--

-I'm aware of the procedures, but--

-No manned flights.

We send an ape. If it's safe,

we talk about a pilot.

Why don't you just allow me

to do my job?

He's the canary, that's the coal mine.

He launches at 1 6:00.

Just follow your sequence

and come home. Understand? Home.

VASICH:
Stand by. Alpha pod launch

in 30 seconds.

VASICH:
Chart his course

to the eye of the storm.

LEO:

Okay, Pericles, start sequence one.

LEO:

Activate reading systems.

LEO:

lgnition.

VASICH:
Have him start

taking perimeter readings.

-What's wrong?

-He's off-course.

Lock on him.

He can't respond, sir.

-There's a surge in the heart rate.

-Light him up again.

I can't.

He's gone.

He's trained to come back.

You think he's still alive?

-Sir--

-For now, we just sit tight and wait.

I'm gonna run some sequences

to see what he did wrong.

HANSEN:
The signal is breaking up.

VASICH:
He must be panicking.

ALEXANDER:

He'll return to the Oberon.

HANSEN:

I can 't hold him.

VASICH:

That's it, we lost him.

FRANK:
Wanna send up another chimp?

-It's too dangerous.

VASICH:

I won 't waste another pod.

VASICH:

Shut down launch operations.

Sir?

Delta pod has launched.

Your flight is not authorized!

I'm going to get my chimp.

VASICH:
Bring that thing back here!

Return to base!

Never send a monkey to do a man's job.

I got a visual on Alpha pod.

Oberon, come back!

Oberon, come in!

-I'm getting a mayday, sir.

-Alpha pod?

-I don't know, but it's strong.

VASICH:
Put it up.

Mayday! Mayday! Come in!

Request-- We're going down! Mayday!

Delta pod, abort.

[APES YELL]

This one looked at me.

Take your stinking hands off me,

you damn dirty human!

GORILLA BOY 1 :

Stinking humans!

GORILLA BOY 2:

You guys smell!

Hey, where am l?

What is this place?

Here! I'm open! Come on!

Dribble it down! Take it!

GORILLA 3:

Make way! Clear the path!

GORILLA BOY 4:

Get the humans!

GORILLA BOY 2:

You guys smell!

GORILLA BOY 4:

Take this!

GORILLA BOY 1 :
Stupid human!

ARl:
Stop it!

-Who said to throw stones at humans?

-My father.

Well, he's wrong.

-And you can tell him I said so.
