Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer, and Nostalgia Chick video

Featuring Andy Serkis as Caesar the Superchimp!

Brave stance they decided to take there, medical science causing the end of the world with a swarm of mutants. Totally original.

Not like it was done before in Mimic, I am Legend, Deep Blue Sea and Splice or anything.

Not that it's particularly new, this idea. Back in the 1700s when they created a vaccine for smallpox from dead cowpox virus, they had people claiming that would cause horrific mutations, making people grow horns and junk. No seriously. They did.

For more on the subject of how science is protrayed in the media, here is a video by someone much smarter than myself on the matter: Lindsey Ellis, the Nostalgia Chick.
