The DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES trailer is upon us. And besides winning awards for longest movie title, this one looks like a winner. Based on the trailer below, DAWN looks to be a much different beast from the first installment RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. We have a much darker tone, a whole new human cast (Gary Oldman anyone!?) and a lot of pissed off apes in tribal paint. Count me in! Check out the official press release with full casting announcements below along with the fantastic teaser trailer that will have fans of the series throwing poop at each other!
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in the last film, reprises his role as Caesar. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes also stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Harry Potter film series), Keri Russell (The Americans, Mission Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (The Prince of Persia, Wrath of the Titans, Rock N Rolla), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, ParaNorman), Enrique Murciano (Traffic, Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (The Descendants, Three Kings, 13 Going on 30).
Yes, I for one am very excited to see more from this one. I was a huge fan of the original reboot film and can’t wait to see where they bring this revived franchise!
Also, I would highly recommend checking out the film’s official website HERE. It’s pretty cool and fun!
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES charges into theaters July 11th 2014.
