Posted Friday August 5, 2011 6:15 PM GMT

Adding to the long list of summer blockbusters, the much-buzzed Rupert Wyatt remake "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" hits theaters today (August 5).

The film acts as a sci-fi prequel to the classic 1968 film and has earned a mass of rave reviews ahead of it's release, especially gaining notoriety for its use of super-real CGI imagery.

Also adding to the movie's excitement is the star-studded cast, including James Franco, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto and John Lithgow.

The film centers around "present day San Francisco, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy."
