Final DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Trailer Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, and Keri Russell

     June 18, 2014


20th Century Fox has released the final Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer less than a week after the previous trailer.  No matter—everything Fox has shown us from Dawn looks great.  The follow-up takes place 10 years after the events of the first film and finds Caesar (Andy Serkis) attempting to assert his dominance over the apes while a small human colony struggles to survive in San Francisco.  I enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes and I am thrilled to see the sequel take a giant step forward and dive deep into a new world.  My only hesitation is the Gary Oldman character, who still looks like the obnoxious, militant villain who barrels over reasonable protagonists.  But I trust director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) hired Oldman for a reason and hope the role is more nuanced outside brief clips.

Jason Clarke, Keri RussellGary Oldman, Toby KebbellKodi Smit-McPheeKirk AcevedoEnrique Murciano, and Judy Greer also star in the July 11 release.  Watch the final Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer after the break.

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.

    Great final trailer, can’t wait.

  • TigerFIST

    Yeah I know I haven’t seen it yet but Gary Oldman character is so frustrating

    • Redjester

      Frustrating and a Gary Oldman performance are two things I rarely hear together in the same sentence. Must be backwards day.

  • Aaron Danforth Wilkins

    I wonder how much Fox execs had to do with Oldman’s character. It can’t be as blatant as we’re seeing this, right?

  • Hunter

    Looks like a shit ton of fun to me. If this and GOTG are good then none of the movies I had high expectations for this summer have let me down. (Godzilla, X-Men, 22 Jump Street, Apes, and GOTG are the ones I’ve had high hopes for)

  • DEADP00L

    Hurry up and get here already !

    i wasnt sure if they were gonna slow play Koba’s role and really save him for the third movie but it looks like he is a big part of this one. I love it.

  • Neven

    I’ve been very hesitant about the new Apes movie, but holy shit this looks amazing!

    Considering that in one of previous trailer, we see Oldman’s character looking at an photo of his presumably dead children and breaking down, I think that there’s more to him than just “I hate apes, just because.”

  • James

    This seriously left my eyes watering from the joy I was experiencing while watching the trailer. This looks absolutely amazing. I can’t wait until this gets released. Movie of the summer!

    Guns don’t kill people.
    Apes with guns kill people.

  • Aaron Danforth Wilkins

    The character seems so damn stilted that it FEELS like he was forced upon by those that don’t know when to keep their hands off a production. Is that better?
