Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Ten years after the pandemic of the deadly ALZ-113 virus, later called Simian Flu, the worldwide human population was drastically reduced, with only about one in five hundred genetically immune to the virus.

The Apes under the chimpanzee Caesar, all rendered genetically enhanced intelligence by the virus, have long established a colony in the Muir Woods near San Francisco. The apes assumed that all humans have died until one day a group of humans under a man named Malcolm enter their territory from San Francisco in search of a hydroelectric dam to restore power to the city. But an encounter by Caesar's first born son Blue Eyes and his friend Ash leads to the latter's injury by a man named Carver, Malcolm manages to prevent further escalation while Caesar orders the humans to leave. Prompted by Koba, a scarred bonobo who holds a grudge against humans for his mistreatment as a test subject, Caesar brings his army to the humans' community at an unfinished tower as a display of strength. Caesar announces his intent to fight the humans if forced to while demanding the humans to stay in their territory. Read more on Wikipedia.
