Film Plot Summary After the credits, the film opened during a training session, taking place presumably in the exterior of space, but it was only a practice session in a flight simulator with a primate named Pericles. His trainer, US Air Force Captain Leo Davidson Mark Wahlberg stepped into view and uttered the first words: "You lose" to the chimpanzee, because he had changed the chimp's flight sequence and it couldn't adapt. He reported to the piloting commander's bridge, entering a security door with a shatter-proof glass barrier by inserting his hand into an ID system. Crew members told him that an electromagnetic cloud storm was moving through space and causing anomalies, including broadcasts of every electronic communication from Earth - from all time! Commander Vasich Chris Ellis called for the Alpha space pod, piloted by Pericles, to pass through the storm's central core and take initial radiation and gamma-ray readings. The pod with the chimp headed into the eye of the storm - went off-course, and then inexplicably disappeared.
In , acclaimed director Tim Burton released a new version of Planet of the Apes. This version, which had been in stalled production for years before Burton signed onto the project, was an entirely new movie and not a remake and owed very little to either the original novel or the first movie , but was instead a mix of plots, themes and lines from both, along with new material. Onboard the Oberon space station, an astronaut named Leo Davidson worked closely with chimpanzees and orangutans who were trained to serve as 'guinea-pigs' for particularly dangerous exploration missions in space. His favourite chimpanzee was Pericles. Pericles learned from training simulators and was rewarded with treats when he achieved his objectives. Leo was summoned to the command deck of the space station where a new situation had emerged; a giant electromagnetic storm. The storm sent all of the radio and television broadcasts of Earth out toward the Oberon.
