Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes has been a highly anticipated film. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was highly popular and was a reboot to the series that was not necessarily needed but it worked. One thing that made the film work so well was Ceaser played brilliantly via motion capture by Andy Serkis. It seems this film or the trailer at least is going a different way. The first film had a great deal of focus on Ceaser and this sequel is not bringing back any of the previous actors except for Serkis. Clearly Andy Serkis’ portrayal was the strongest point in the film.
This trailer is very brief and although we get to see Ceaser it is simply a lingering shot of his face before him giving an order to attack. Despite Serkis being a strong point of the first film it makes sense to have more human characters fighting back. Gary Oldman features in the trailer and gives a voiceover about how humans have fought each other in order to survive and hopes that they will be able to rebuild their society.
Obviously a great deal of time has passed since the first film and this world is going to be a post apocalyptic world where society has collapsed and the world is now run by apes. I don’t think humans are slaves in this but I think they are being wiped out by the apes. Only time will tell. Other than Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman the film stars Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Judy Greer.
Are you going to see this when it hits cinemas in July? Please comment below and thanks for reading.
