Two ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Primate Behavior Viral Videos

Two very creep viral videos have immerged from Japan in support of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. These short clips are from director Rupert Wyatt's own personal collection of Primate Behavior videos that he used as reference for the film. The first shows a chimpanzee playing a video game, the second captures a gorilla walking upright. Are they real? Or are they the work of WETA, the effects house behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes? Check out the videos below and decide for yourself!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was released August 5th, 2011.

    This film would be so much better, more scarier and more interesting if the apes weren't genetically engineered.

      @rodrigo-villanueva you can't even see his fingers while he is playing. The video has been cut.

        Anyone that has ever played an FPS game can tell the chimp isnt playing... the fingers are moving too slow! (The game seems to be FarCry 2)

          What gives away the first video is the fact that the chimp isn't pressing the R1 button (which is the shooting button), he's just smashing buttons and looking at a TV.

          BTW, I actually went to the zoo today (I wanted to see the apes again after watching the new trailer yesterday and the 3rd Apes movie). I saw a gorilla throw up his food and re-eat over and over, about 15 times till I left.

            I'm really looking forward to watching this movie.

              if evolution is true then we are already a planet of the apes

                    Great choice of game, Far Cry 2. Learn the chimps how to kill people using weapons. Irony is the setting of the game.

                    PS3 ftw!

                      Of all the games you could let a chimp play with before increasing it's intelligence
