DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Clip: Disturbing Ape Behavior Hints at a Much Darker Film

     June 20, 2014

It was always clear that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes would be darker than Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  Post-apocalyptic movies tend to be a bit of a downer.  However, a new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes clip shows something that’s not just dark, but also flat-out disturbing.  The clip features the ape Koba (Toby Kebbell), who you may recall wasn’t quite as forgiving as Caesar when it came to humans in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (the character was first played by Chris Gordon, but Kebbell came on board for the sequel since Koba has a larger role).  As this clip shows, Koba’s attitude hasn’t changed, but he’s become far more devious.  I almost wish Fox had kept this clip under wraps, but since they already showed some of it in the recent trailer, I suppose there’s no reason to keep it in the bag.

Hit the jump to check out the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes clip.  The film opens in 3D on July 11th, and also stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Keri RussellGary Oldman, Kodi Smit-McPheeKirk AcevedoEnrique Murciano, and Judy Greer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:

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.
