Following last week's TV spot that featured some bear hunting on behalf of the evolved simians, a new TV spot for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has arrived. This time, 20th Century Fox seems to be recalling how the apes came to be this intelligent, for anyone who didn't see Rise of the Planet of the Apes a few years ago. Jason Clarke recounts the story, maybe for his son Kodi Smit-McPhee who's too young to remember the revolution, and then we get thrown into the war brewing as humans and apes clash again. There's also a great new shot of Caesar's ape army riding on horses, firing guns. It looks truly epic. Watch!
Here's the newest TV spot for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from the film's YouTube page:
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors. 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. Besides Serkis, the apes cast includes Judy Greer as Cornelia & Toby Kebbell as Koba. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rupert Wyatt's revival of the sci-fi franchise Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Directing is Matt Reeves, of Let Me In and Cloverfield previously, from a script written by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver. 20th Century Fox has Dawn of the Planet of the Apes scheduled for a 3D release on July 11th this summer.
