A research scientist (James Franco) tests a drug on a group of chimpanzees, greatly increasing their intelligence before he's forced to put them all down. That is, all but Caesar (Andy Serkis in a voice and motion-capture performance), one of the test subjects' offspring, whose enhanced brain capacity enables him to lead his fellow primates in a violent revolution against humanity. Provocative reboot of the classic sci-fi film series also stars Freida Pinto, John Lithgow. 105 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
