Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the 2011 prequel "reboot" of the Planet of the Apes film series. The film was directed by Rupert Wyatt and stars James Franco as a scientist in search of a cure for Alzheimer's and finds that one of his apes that has been given an experimental drug appears to have developed intelligent reasoning. The film would spawn the sequels Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and War for the Planet of the Apes (2017).

The following weapons were used in the film Rise of the Planet of the Apes:

Rifles and Carbines
