The gorgeous Freida Pinto, who stars in this weekend’s probable number one movie, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, survived a crash course in special effects filmmaking last year. She shot Apes right after shooting Tarsem Singh’s effects-heavy mythological tale, Immortals, which is due out in November.

The actress sat down with EW this week to talk about her experience shooting Rise of the Planet of the Apes alongside Andy Serkis (a.k.a. Gollum), who, thanks to the wonders of motion-capture technology and WETA, plays Caesar, the monkey at the center of the film. She also took a little time to share her favorite summer movies.
