New Movie Releases: ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes,’ ‘The Change-Up’ [VIDEOS]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
20th Century Fox

Could ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ be the surprise blockbuster of the summer? Critics certainly seem to think so.

The James Franco vehicle, which serves as a reboot of the classic ‘Apes’ franchise, is receiving strong reviews thus far – or at least stronger than most had expected.

But will good reviews translate into box-office gold? It’s tough to say. If audiences are turned off by apes trying to take over the world, they could go for ‘The Change-Up’ instead, which stars funnymen Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman who switch bodies after wishing they had each other’s lives.

Below, get a rundown of the biggest movies playing in theaters this weekend.
