This week on streaming video, the most notable new release is the blockbuster follow-up to 2011’s immensely successful Planet of the Apes franchise reboot, but Netflix is also delivering some noteworthy classics, like a beloved Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker comedy, a certain Oscar-winning Scottish epic from Mel Gibson, a dark David Fincher thriller starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, and a Jim Carrey/Jeff Daniels comedy whose sequel arrives in theaters next week. Read on for details:
