It always seems like there is always another species trying to take over the world. It’s usually some alien race from some distant galaxy but in Twentieth Century Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes it is home-grown apes. The genetically modified ones we saw get created in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” of course, but apes nonetheless. In the short trailer, Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke try to align the last remnants of man for a final push against Caesar, but I’m willing to bet it isn’t going to go over too well for them. At least audiences will once again get some fantastic visual effects from WETA Digital to go along with the fight to subjugate the human race. Judge for yourself.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Judy Greer, Andy Serkis, Keri Russell and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
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.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes overtakes US theaters on July 11, 2014 and UK theaters on July 17, 2014.
