Rise of the Planet of the Apes Wins PETA US Award

Posted on by PETA

Get your ticket to go see the most awaited movie of this season, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The movie’s message and CGI special effects are so animal-friendly that PETA US has given director Rupert WyattProggy Award for recognising that real great apes don’t belong on production sets.


Given the impressive technology available now – and you’ll see it in all its glory in this film – there’s no need to hire wild-animal trainers who rip baby chimpanzees away from their mothers and physically abuse them to force them to perform on cue.

Run, walk or swing through the trees – just don’t wait to see this movie!

A PETA US “chimpanzee” gives Rise of the Planet of the Apes two opposable thumbs up outside the premiere in Hollywood.
