There are a number of good films opening in the area this weekend, and plenty of Hollywood news to discuss. It's all here in this week's installment of Cinema Chat.
Opening at the Multiplex
In “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” a growing nation of genetically evolved apes is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” opens Friday.
