Today, 20th Century Fox announced that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, will be released on July 11, 2014. That’s after previously being pushed back to July 18 from May 23, so it’s sort of an improvement. Matt Reeves is directing, after Rupert Wyatt reportedly dropped out due to deadline pressure.
The film stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi-Smith-Mcphee, Enrique Muriciano and Kirk Acevedo.
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.
There’s also a new set of posters out, one of which is above depicting Caesar. See the rest here.
