"APES! DO NOT WANT WAR!"
But war is coming regardless, and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES delivers the final, and best, trailer of the upcoming film. This, more than any other movie, is the movie of the summer for me. Everything about it feels heartfelt and passionate; this is epic filmmaking that, unlike so many others, doesn't forget that without stakes, without emotion, without characters and resonant themes, it's all just cacophony. I got multiple goosebump moments watching this trailer, and while RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was intimate, slowly building to its finale, DAWN sets the stage for a massive global conflict.
I don't mind telling you, I'm rooting for the apes. DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES opens July 11th, and for me, the pinnacle of summer entertainment. Here's the new trailer.
