Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – Ape Army TV Spot

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - Ape Army TV Spot

Under the radar just like its predecessor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is released in just a few months. A new TV spot is out, showing the apes in all their glory. And they look magnificent.

Here’s the human-centric trailer from a couple of months back -

The plot: A decade on, the growing nation of genetically-evolved apes is threatened by a band of human survivors. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived and soon they’re on the brink of a war that’ll determine who emerges as Earth’s dominant species.

As you can see, James Franco is not returning. Instead the main human will be played by Gary Oldman alongside a family made up of Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Keri Russell (Dark Skies) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In). The capable Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) comes on board as director. Andy Serkis is back doing motion capture for lead ape Caesar. His work was jaw-dropping last time, so he’s reason alone for seeing this – even though his arc here can’t be nearly as fascinating. Fans will be interested to know that Caesar now has a son (see poster below) and his main rival is Koba.

Since the Charlton Heston original tells us that the apes win and humanity is enslaved/extinguished, this is surely going to be a depressing watch. Still the previous movie was surprisingly entertaining so let’s assume this has a satisfying way of doing it.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is out in the US on 7th July, UK on the 11th July.

    Man, this looks bad. But, not surprising, as the first one was extremely stupid.

        You’ve got to be kidding. It was laugh out loud stupid. Not, of course, as bad as Tim Burton’s abomination, but few things are.

    Funny. I thought that this new POTA series was a reboot of the franchise; a whole new take on how the apes take over.

      It’s not called ‘Planet of the Apes and Humans Living Side by Side’. We lose.
