Few films have surprised me, especially in the past couple years, as much as Rise of the Planet of the Apes. A film I was completely ready to write off as just a cash grab was a surprisingly compelling look at the apes from the original film, anchored by an incredible performance by Andy Serkis. The sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, will be making its way into theaters next year, and the first trailer released today offers a glimpse at what is to come.
While certainly brief, it does give just enough of a taste to water my appetite for the film. The special effects, once again, look absolutely incredible, and I’m sure that Serkis is going to give another powerhouse performance. We’ll have to see, though, when the film is released on July 11, 2014.
