Movies DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Teaser Goes To War written by Sean Gerber December 18, 2013 20th Century Fox has just thrown down the gauntlet with its first teaser trailer for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Watch the teaser and then check below for a few thoughts. The marketing folks at Fox have done an excellent job in piecing together this teaser. In 92 seconds, the stage is set, telling us the state of humanity since a lethal virus ravaged the globe in the closing credits of 2011’s RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The stakes are strongly hinted at as the humans and apes march to war. Finally, the footage closes with a moment we can’t wait to see finished as Caesar signals his apes into battle. This is exactly the kind of “can’t wait” excitement a teaser should generate. The wait for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES’ July 11, 2014 release date feels a little bit longer today, which is a credit to the effectiveness of this trailer.

How does this trailer to an unlikely sequel look so awesome? Well done with rejuvenating this franchise, Fox. Matthew Dickinson Only a recent fan, but I love both incarnations of TPotA (I pretend Burton’s doesn’t exist) and can’t wait for Battle. Spot on assessment of a mighty trailer, glad you are keeping an eye on the franchise for us. MMM’s ‘Blank the Planet of the Apes’ essay got me into it in the first place, will that feature ever be continued? I remember it still after a year after it came out! stock With Gary joining Serkis, I think we’re looking at a proper remake of Conquest OTPTOA. Not a good movie, which is a plus for this one. Robert Reineke Yeah, it is a terrific teaser. It doesn’t spoil anything really, just lays out the tone, stakes, and conflict. Good stuff.
