"Rise of the Planet of the Apes," out in theaters today, promises a full-scale reboot to one of the most classic science fiction film franchises of all time. But it's not without some winks and nods to the past. Indeed, there's plenty of old school material for longtime "Apes" fans to go bananas over. Click the video below and read on for five Easter Eggs from the latest "Apes" adventure!
The original "Planet of the Apes" tells the story of an astronaut crew that crash lands on a world dominated by highly evolved apes. That's not the plot here, but perhaps it'll serve as a launch point for a sequel based on two separate shout-outs to the original film's story.

I’m such an avid fan of the Planet Of The Apes films – even the TV Show and Animated Series. To me it’s the greatest franchise in movie history. Having seen Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the film is truly a welcomed addition to the series and one of the best films of 2011!
You can imagine how thrilled I was to receive an email with an invitation to speak with screenwriters of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa. I had the great pleasure of talking to these two writers, producers (and married couple) and found to my giddy delight that we share a common love of animals and all things Apes!
The following is our conversation on the film, CGI apes, animal rights and spaceships.
