Fake Apes Take the Cake

Mark your calendars for August 5 in order to be first in line to buy tickets for the highly anticipated Rise of the Planet of the Apesbecause no primates were used, harmed, or exploited in the making of the film.

Producers 20th Century Fox and director Rupert Wyatt used exclusively computer-generated imagery (CGI), and not a single chimpanzee, orangutan, or monkey had to suffer the stress of behind-the-scenes beatings, confinement to cramped cages, and performing confusing tricks “on cue.”

Says Wyatt, “Personally, I had moral problems with the idea of using chimps.” An article in The Independent calls the “impressive” CGI apes a “highlight” of the film.

Do Wyatt and 20th Century Fox pull it off? Watch the trailer and judge for yourself:

    The apes look no better today than they did in Jumanji. Real actors in makeup should have been used.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
