How new "Planet of the Apes" was made

The new "Planet of the Apes," which hits theaters tomorrow, is a combination of computer technology and a dose of movie magic.

It depicts an animal uprising, an army of apes battling humans in present-day San Francisco.

The big action came with a big challenge. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was made without a single primate.

"We knew we would live or die with how people perceived these apes. We needed an audience to think those are real apes, real orangutans and real gorillas," explained Rupert Wyatt, the film's director.
