Re: Rise of Planet of the Apes

I'm assuming that the 2001 film is just non-canon at this point, and that this one occurs some time after they send the astronauts from the first two movies into space?

Re: Rise of Planet of the Apes

I don't think that other movie has to be ignored. This seems to fit perfectly into the storyline, from what little I know of it.

Re: Rise of Planet of the Apes

I believe that in the first films, where the apes have already taken over, the astronauts somehow traveled into the future a bit. It's not actually mentioned in the movies, but if you simply look at the environment in the films, you'll notice that there is a lot of vegetation and even Lady Liberty looks really old and is half buried.
For this prequel, the astronauts/Marky Mark, could either:
A- They could already be up in space when the planet goes ape spit.
B- They went up in the past and never returned/traveled in time.
C- The went up during the uprising not knowing about the uprising at the moment and came back to the Planet of the Apes.

Yeah I see no reason why this new movie would mess with that lame-o plot device.

Looks good. I expect it to be better than the 2001 version.

What time cycle are you talking about? The first or the second? Didn't it take roughly 2000 years for the first astronauts to hit the planet?

What ever, here's what I know about the first time cycle in case you haven't seen/don't remember the old movies. I think I'll post up the second cycle later.
( Click to show/hide )
It's around the end of the nineteen sixties when Earth, which has more knowledge and better usage of rockets than in real life, sends four astro-scientists out into space, to do space science. The ship malfunctions and is lost by the United States scientists doing science on Earth. A year or two later, another astronaut is sent out, but he doesn't come back either.

Well a few years go by and I guess people just lose interest. Humans move onto the next big thing which is training monkeys. Primates have gotten smarter over the decade and go from common pets to sources of labor, commonly treated with cruelty. When the cold war ends with nukes, survivors from heavily bombarded areas mutate after so many generations while people from less radiated areas continue to live with simians. Eventually, one baby monkey cries out "NO!" after being treated with hostility and it is revealed that apes have secretly developed enough to communicate with one another as humans can. The apes now revolt, no longer needing to hide while they grow resistance powers. By the end of the 20th century, apes dominate the world and eradicate all mutants and most humans. Humans, no longer civilized and able to communicate, live and act like vermin while the apes, now the dominant species, develop a caste system in which gorillas perform physical labor, orangutangs work in organization and bureaucratic professions, and the chimps occupy science labs, where chimp scientists do science. Other animal species (besides horses) die out, for some reason.

2000 years after being launched those missing astronauts turn up. They hadn't time traveled, their ship was built to preserve their bodies for thousands of years. The ship was broken as one of the sleeping pods didn't work, leaving the dusty remains of one astronaut. Another member is killed in a human hunt, while the remaining two are captured. Taylor, the lead character in the first movie, loses his ability to speak due to an injury and unfortunately doesn't regain it before his last remaining friend is lobotomized. The apes are blown away when they discover his ability to talk, and it is made clear that the apes don't know about earlier human society. Dr. Zaius threatens Taylor and demands that he not reveal where he really came from. Two scientists named Zira and Cornelius bust Taylor out, as well as a female human named Nova, after he's later taken back to his cage. The group escapes the city by going through the forbidden zone, which is a land plagued by old and fearful superstitions.

The group eventually meets up with a group of gorillas and Dr. Zaius, who tells them that the planet was in fact ruled by humans at some time, but the apes turned on them for their warlike behavior and the secret has been kept since then. He agrees to let Taylor and Nova go, only leaving Taylor with the warning that he won't like what he finds. At this point the first movie ends and Taylor sees the Statue of Liberty, realizing that he was on Earth. Later on, Taylor and Nova are startled by a great wall of fire that appears in the Forbidden Zone and Taylor disappears suddenly.

A year later, the astronaut that was sent after Taylor's broken ship (named Brent) comes down on the planet, but his own ship becomes unrecoverable after it crashes. He eventually meets Nova and sees that she has Taylor's dog tags, and the two eventually reach the house of Cornelius and Zira. The couple helps them get to a cave that Brent recognizes as the old New York subway, and follows down to the civilization of mutants that had secretly been hiding under the Forbidden Zone, and who worship a large and undetonated nuclear missile. Using developed psychic powers (the same ones that they had used to create superstitions of taboo and had abducted Taylor with) they interrogate Brent and determine that he and the rest of the humans are simply too violent, or something. After an army of gorillas discover and invade the area (their search driven by a desperation for food) Nova is killed while Taylor and Brent run to stop the mutants from detonating the bomb as a last resort. The gorillas arrive first and get the job done for them, but don't know what the bomb is for. They kill Brent before he has a chance to shoot them with a stolen gun and Taylor is shot as he reaches the missile. Dr. Zaius tells the nearly dead Taylor that all he is capable of is destruction. In his last breath, Taylor activates the bomb. End of Earth.

The apes now revolt, no longer needing to hide while they grow resistance powers. By the end of the 20th century, apes dominate the world and eradicate all mutants and most humans. Humans, no longer civilized and able to communicate, live and act like vermin while the apes, now the dominant species, develop a caste system in which gorillas perform physical labor, orangutangs work in organization and bureaucratic professions, and the chimps occupy science labs, where chimp scientists do science. Other animal species (besides horses) die out, for some reason.

2000 years after being launched those missing astronauts turn up. They hadn't time traveled, their ship was built to preserve their bodies for thousands of years. The ship was broken as one of the sleeping pods didn't work, leaving the dusty remains of one astronaut. Another member is killed in a human hunt, while the remaining two are captured. Taylor, the lead character in the first movie, loses his ability to speak due to an injury and unfortunately doesn't regain it before his last remaining friend is lobotomized. The apes are blown away when they discover his ability to talk, and it is made clear that the apes don't know about earlier human society. Dr. Zaius threatens Taylor and demands that he not reveal where he really came from. Two scientists named Zira and Cornelius bust Taylor out, as well as a female human named Nova, after he's later taken back to his cage. The group escapes the city by going through the forbidden zone, which is a land plagued by old and fearful superstitions.

The group eventually meets up with a group of gorillas and Dr. Zaius, who tells them that the planet was in fact ruled by humans at some time, but the apes turned on them for their warlike behavior and the secret has been kept since then. He agrees to let Taylor and Nova go, only leaving Taylor with the warning that he won't like what he finds. At this point the first movie ends and Taylor sees the Statue of Liberty, realizing that he was on Earth. Later on, Taylor and Nova are startled by a great wall of fire that appears in the Forbidden Zone and Taylor disappears suddenly.

A year later, the astronaut that was sent after Taylor's broken ship (named Brent) comes down on the planet, but his own ship becomes unrecoverable after it crashes. He eventually meets Nova and sees that she has Taylor's dog tags, and the two eventually reach the house of Cornelius and Zira. The couple helps them get to a cave that Brent recognizes as the old New York subway, and follows down to the civilization of mutants that had secretly been hiding under the Forbidden Zone, and who worship a large and undetonated nuclear missile. Using developed psychic powers (the same ones that they had used to create superstitions of taboo and had abducted Taylor with) they interrogate Brent and determine that he and the rest of the humans are simply too violent, or something. After an army of gorillas discover and invade the area (their search driven by a desperation for food) Nova is killed while Taylor and Brent run to stop the mutants from detonating the bomb as a last resort. The gorillas arrive first and get the job done for them, but don't know what the bomb is for. They kill Brent before he has a chance to shoot them with a stolen gun and Taylor is shot as he reaches the missile. Dr. Zaius tells the nearly dead Taylor that all he is capable of is destruction. In his last breath, Taylor activates the bomb. End of Earth.
I'll shut up now.

Re: Rise of Planet of the Apes

So yeah, the rest of the movies aren't as good but they're still somewhat entertaining. Since I'm fairly certain that this movie takes place during the fourth movie, I'm only going to go over the beginning of the second cycle. I couldn't remember the third movie very well, being that I've only seen it once, so I can't recall too much. If you want specifics, I recommend going into Wikipedia or watching the third movie. If you want to watch the series, I'd start with the trilogy and then watch the rest after you see the new film.

( Click to show/hide )
After helping Nova and Brent flee the ape city, Cornelius, Zira, and a third scientist who is pretty much the equivalent of a red shirt manage to fix up Brent's space ship and fly off. The shock wave of the nuclear blast sends them BACK IN TIME! Coincidentally they arrive in the later half of the 20th century. The third chimp manages to get beaten to death by a gorilla at the zoo that the three stay at, hiding there in plain sight. Zira lets her intelligence slip and the couple are treated like celebrities, the two no longer giving a rats ass about history since they've already been discovered. Later she (while drunk) also lets slip she's that she's from the future and that apes are going to dominate the human race. Oops. The two are captured and interrogated but escape with the help of some friends who had previously worked at the same zoo they had been hiding in. Zira gives birth to a son and swaps it with a baby at a traveling circus, but she and Cornelius are eventually found and killed.

Beneath the Planet of the Apes was my favorite as a kid; when the underground humanoids removed their masks it freaked me out beyond belief!

Re: Rise of Planet of the Apes

I'm thinking about watching all the Ape movies in chronological order just to get updated. The last one, Battle for Planet of the Apes, is the one where Cornelius and Zira's son, Cesar, is taken in as a pet and then creates an uprising which will ultimately lead to the first part. This new movie seems to be a remake of BPA, but with a different twist to it.

Just figured I should post the plot summary. It's short but once more comes out it will be expanded.
