20th Century Fox (via MSN) has released a new video cluing us into the events that took place between the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which hits theaters on July 17.
Dawn is set 15 years after the events of 2011’s Rise and focuses on a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis), threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. 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.
The film is directed by Matt Reeves and features a cast that includes Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Judy Greer, Toby Kebbell and Enrique Murciano.
