Rise of the Planet of the Apes will arrive on home video on December 13 and include a slew of extras sure to excite even the most passive of Apes fans.

Franco plays Will Rodman, a scientist who believes he is on the path of curing Alzheimer’s. His treatment is showing signs of working as it increases the intelligence of the primates on whom he is testing the formula. Only problem is his treatment is having side effects. Those small little issues will eventually lead to the destruction of the human race, hence the title of the film.
