Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Synopsis

Ten years after the "simian flu" pandemic brings humanity to the brink of extinction, a human survivor named Malcolm (Jason Clarke) makes a startling discovery in the woods outside San Francisco: a group of super-intelligent apes, under the guidance of their leader, Caesar, has formed the beginnings of a civilization. Malcolm's band of survivors forms a tense partnership with Caesar's apes as they work to restore power to San Francisco, but escalating distrust - and a plot by Caesar's rival to forestall any coexistence with humans - soon brings the two species into open war.
