Scientist Will Rodman (James Franco) develops a revolutionary therapy that enables the brain to repair itself, offering hope to millions of people with a variety of debilitating conditions.

But before his discovery can be marketed to humans, he's told to test it on chimpanzees. To be certain the treatment is stable, he begins with just one animal. Then something unexpected happens. Baby chimp Caesar swiftly develops advanced mental abilities.

As Will's employers seek to contain the experiment, Caesar's simian mind turns to thoughts of revolution.

For the latest version of the Planet of the Apes franchise, digital technology has advanced so far that the Oscar-winning WETA effects house have produced a legion of stunningly convincing photo-realistic apes!

You should see it because: As a gripping reinvention, this ranks alongside 'Star Trek' and 'X-Men: First Class', with another extraordinary 'captured performance' by Andy ('Gollum') Serkis as Caesar.
