New ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Pics: The Humans Are in Big Trouble
A new ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ trailer is coming (in theaters with ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘), but to help you get excited for the next installment in the updated ‘Apes’ franchise, we have a bunch of new pics from the film. And, a lot has happened since ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’…
USA Today has a fresh look at ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ this morning and it shows just how far the apes have come since the end of the last movie. Says star Andy Serkis, “Caesar not only has a wife, but also an infant son and a teenage son” (his wife, Cornelia, is played by Judy Greer).
In these photos, we see a few things that spell trouble for the remaining humans (played by Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and others). Namely, Caesar holding a shotgun and an army of apes riding horses. It’s not a major spoiler alert to say that things probably don’t end well for the humans.
Director Matt Reeves admits, “We all know it doesn’t become Planet of Humans and Apes. It becomes Planet of the Apes. But this is that one moment of time where there is hope for humans.”
How much hope is realistically left? We’ll find out this summer when ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ opens in theaters on July 11. Check out the new photos below.
