Music Composed by Patrick Doyle (Thor, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, Henry V)
An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. Starring James Franco, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), John Lithgow, Andy Serkis (Lord Of The RIngs) and Brian Cox, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale — a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other — and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
The Oscar-winning visual effects team that brought to life the worlds of Avatar and Lord of the Rings is breaking new ground, creating a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence, and epic battles on which rest the upended destinies of man and primate.
Patrick Doyle, riding high with the score for THOR, chalks up another summer blockbuster.
20th Century Fox opens RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES nationwide on August 5.
Whilst no fan of Doyle, Im pretty sure Ill get this. I have all the earlier scores, Im a fan of the Apes films so hopefully this will be good. In fact, I cant remember the last time I bought a current score by anyone!
