Here is the plot description for “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”:

In this origins story set in present-day San Francisco, a scientist’s tampering with the laws of nature take him to the brink of a medical revolution. All the while, it also leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

The Oscar-winning visual effects team who brought to life the worlds of “Avatar” and “Lord of the Rings” is now breaking new ground. They’re creating a CGI ape who delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence along with epic battles on which rest the upended destinies of man and primate.
