I was already excited to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and then came a string of ecstatic reactions to the film with some calling it not only the best film of the summer but one of the best films of the year. That’s some serious praise, and yet I’m not totally surprised. Rise of the Planet of the Apes gave us a strong central character with Caesar, the potential to push the story into new and interesting places, and digital effects only continue to get better. This is a blockbuster that could deliver in a big way.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 25 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Judy Greer.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis:
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.
