Rise of the Planet of the Apes

A scientist (James Franco) searching for a cure for Alzheimer's disease 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 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, Brian Cox. Followed by "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes".
