To be entirely honest, I’m at a loss for what to say here. This is among one of the best trailers I’ve seen in a while. I’ve always looked at movie trailers as their own art form, and this one, stands as a shining example of that. We get a good hint of the story (obviously both groups have been leaving each other alone for years), how they are coming to blows, and most of all we see some key emotion. It’s obvious that Caesar is in power and struggling with how to handle the new situation.
It’s epic in all the right places, and makes me feel like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is going to be the film to beat this Summer. Not to mention the James Franco cameo!
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.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters on July 11, 2014. What did you guys think of the new trailer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
