'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Gets TV Spot, Poster (Video)
We’ve already seen the rise, but the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is just around the corner — a fact marked by a new TV spot explaining what gives the apes the edge in their war against humanity, as well as a new poster showing Caesar’s gentle side.
As the apes ride out looking suitably scary on horses — we can but dream of the eventual Rise of the Planet of the Horses Mad That They Had to Stay Subservient Whether It Was Humans or Apes In Charge spin-off — a voiceover for the TV spot explains “The scary thing about them? They don’t need power — lights, heat, nothin’. That’s their advantage. That’s what makes them stronger.” (You can watch the video below.)
Accompanying the new spot, Collider had the reveal of a new poster for the movie, directed by Matt Reeves, which shows Caeser — the ape that led the rebellion in the previous installment — grumpily looking off-camera while cuddling an innocent baby ape.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, starring Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman, is released July 11.
