Watch! New Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Trailer!

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise cinematic treat in 2011, the second reboot of a franchise that had gone quite some time without a palpable hit. The movie was rare joy, rather cleverly anchoring its high-concept science-fiction premise in an engaging tale of a family divided, featuring a fantastic central performance from Andy Serkis as the somewhat forebodingly named “Caesar.”

It’ll be interesting to see if Dawn of the Planet of the Apes can match that quality, but the trailer looks like it hits the right notes – the word “family” gets repeated quite a bit, suggesting that the larger scale doesn’t mean we’ll drift too far from the themes of the original. While James Franco doesn’t look to be returning outside a small cameo on digital camcorder (although let’s not rule things out), the cast looks pretty solid. It’s a nice (nominal) lead role for Jason Clarke, and it’s always good to see Gary Oldman being unhinged.

Anyway, check out the trailer below.

  1. Looks fantastic, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was surprisingly fantastic. It looks like this one will live up to it!

  2. I enjoyed this trailer and I’m looking forward, but I felt like it gave soooo much away. Ceasar speaking for example. Tease me a bit with a word, or short sentence…. but whole dialogue?

    • I don’t know. It’s weird and arbitrary, but I actually find it easier to accept apes who already talk rather than watching the transition. The “no!” scene in Rise was great, but I remember finding some of the other sequences seemed a little cheesy.
