The sequel came out just last summer but here's another chance to see James Franco get to grips with the apes, as we see how this planet they will one day rule came to be. It begins with a scientist (Franco) carrying out genetic experiments on the apes, hoping to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease. A chimpanzee (Caesar!) used in the tests develops superior intelligence and becomes outraged at the human race's cruel treatment of his kind, forming his fellow primates into an army to overthrow mankind. And yeah... sh*t goes down.
