Oscar-winning visual effects house Weta Digital will use groundbreaking technology to greatly upgrade the apes from the standard actors in costumes to full digital warrior greatness.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes will take place in modern day San Francisco and will play the hand of the doomed fate of mankind due to the experiments with genetic engineering in apes and thus making far intelligent from what the originally are. These super apes will then launch an attack for supremacy against mankind.
