WATCH: The events that led up to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

June 14th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

20th Century Fox has released a new video which shows what happened between Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It incorporates footage through news clips, photos, web searches etc. that gives us some insight on the severity of the Simian Flu. It all leads up to the ominous street art above, that warns of the apes uprising… “Prepare For Dawn.”

“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.”

Directed by Matt Reeves with a script from Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa and Mark Bomback,  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues the story that began in 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the cast includes Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.

Dawn comes to theaters on July 11th, 2014 in the US and on July 17th in the UK. With a third film to follow on July 29th, 2016.
