There was a fair amount of concern in the early days of the movie sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, after Rise of the Planet of the Apes direct Rupert Wyatt left the project, but it seems that these concerns were for nothing. We have seen plenty of promotional material for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, including pictures, clips and trailers, with the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer looking fantastic.
While we already know that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will take place 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the official synopsis reads, "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."
Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Judy Greer, with Andy Serkis once again giving a great motion capture performance as Caesar. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves, based on the characters that have been developed by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will open on July 11 in the US, before then going on to hit the big screen in the UK on July 17. With just a few weeks to wait until Dawn of the Planet of the Apes final hits the big screen, why not get yourself even more excited for the release, by taking a look at the new, and rather epic, final Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer, below.
