    This is an American science-fiction drama which reinvents the original Planet of the Apes series with a slightly different storyline, while remaining just as entertaining. Will Rodman (James Franco) is a scientist at a biotechnology company who tests a new gene therapy drug on chimpanzees while working on a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. A baby chimpanzee named Caesar, who gains human-like intelligence due to the drug, is raised by a chimpanzee handler, Robert Franklin (Tyler Labine). As Caesar develops rapidly and begins to question his identity, he ends up going on a rampage against humans. You will be blown away by the stunning visual effects of this film!
