Ten years after the outbreak of the ALZ-113 virus, millions of humans are dead and lots of apes have been made very, very smart. Human civilisation has collapsed as its numbers dwindled. The apes have not been in contact with humans in that time and live in the woods outside San Francisco. Their leader Caesar tries to govern his people peacefully and is dismayed when a band of human survivors accidentally shoots one of his young subjects, so he visits their settlement to tell them to stay away from the woods. One survivor (Jason Clarke) believes he can make peace with the apes and asks for access to a hydroelectric dam. Caesar agrees, but dissenting voices on both sides start gathering arms.

Ents24 Rating


Genre: Family / Comedy
Director: Nick Moore
Running time: 87 mins

In 2012, plucky teenager Ashleigh Butler and her adorable dog Pudsey won Britain's Got Talent with an entertaining dance routine that endeared them to the hearts of millions of grandparents and seven-year-olds nationwide. Simon Cowell saw an opportunity to make the bed of money he sleeps on even deeper, and so this cobbled-together comedy was born. Pudsey shows his theatrical range by playing a cheeky London stray (voiced by David Walliams) who is quite happy not having an owner. But when he meets three children who have recently lost their father, he forms a bond with them. When their mother (Jessica Hynes) relocates the family to a sleepy village in the countryside, Pudsey tags along and makes trouble for their new landlord (John Sessions).

There are a million reasons not to like estate agent Oren Little, chief among them being that he is played by Michael Douglas, whose career is littered with similar rich, heartless, self-absorbed types. Wilfully obnoxious to adults, animals and children alike, Oren enjoys making life difficult for the people unlucky enough to live in the building he owns, and his long-suffering employees hate him. But one day his comfortable existence is turned upside-down when his estranged son asks him to take care of the granddaughter he never knew he had. Initially Oren tries to rope in his neighbour, a lounge singer named Leah (Diane Keaton), to babysit. Eventually he learns to love his new responsibilities.

He travels around to different nuclear power stations, carrying out dangerous but well-paid maintenance work and develops a rough, brotherly bond with his colleagues. Risking radiation poisoning on a daily basis, Gary has no qualms about rushing headlong into an affair with Karole (Lea Seydoux), a beautiful young woman who is also engaged to one of his colleagues. But they are less than discreet and soon Gary has more to worry about than just constantly monitoring his radiation levels.
