Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The most recent TV spot for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes looked back at the past events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes to set the stage for the summer sequel. Now a new video explains some of the events that have happened between the first film in 2011, and where the human race finds itself 10 years later. Government activity has been suspended, a large sect of the population has been wiped out by the simian flu (shown in the end credits of the first prequel), and the world is in chaotic, apocalyptic times. This video shows a series of newsreel footage and reports about the dark times leading to the dawn of the apes. Watch!

Here's the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes featurette from MSN:

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.
