From page A9 | July 09, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — 20th Century Fox is banking on moviegoers going ape for the studio’s newest offering, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which opens Friday nationwide.

This marks the eighth film in the “Planet of the Apes” franchise, which debuted in 1968. The ninth installment is slated for release in 2016.

Keri Russell and Gary Oldman are featured in this PG-13 flick, which continues the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar presides over the fall of human civilization. A band of humans threatens the genetically evolved apes and both end up on the brink of war to determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Also out this week, Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton star in “And So it Goes,” a movie that tells the story of a self-centered real estate agent who is left in charge of a granddaughter he never knew existed. It’s rated PG-13.

Opening in limited release Friday are:

“Boyhood,” a drama that covers 12 years in the life of a family. At the center is Mason, with his sister, Samantha, as they journey from childhood to adulthood. Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke star. It’s rated R.

“A Long Way Down,” which features Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette and Aaron Paul as three people ready to end their lives on New Year’s Eve. When the strangers meet, they agree to call off their plans for six weeks. Their written pact inadvertently binds them together. It’s rated R.

“Road to Paloma,” a thriller about a Native American man on the run after avenging his mother’s murder. Jason Momoa stars and directs. It’s rated R.

“Land Ho,” which follows a pair of retirees who set off to Iceland in an attempt to reclaim their youth through Reykjavik’s nightclubs, trendy spas and rugged campsites. It’s rated R.

“Rage,” which stars Nicolas Cage as a respectable businessman and loving father living a peaceful life. Then his violent past comes to haunt him. Danny Glover also stars in the thriller. It’s not rated.
