The movies stars Andy Sirkis – already quite used to simian roles as Caesar, the ape who starts the whole revolution going. James Franco is playing the human lead, the scientist whose cure for Alzheimer’s produces remarkable effects on its ape test subjects. Hollywood heavyweights Brian Cox and John Lithgow add some muscle to the cast too.
When will it be in theaters? The Rise of the Planet of the Apes will be in movie theaters on August 5.
