'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Featurette Details Events Since 'Rise' Sequel (Video)
"Prepare for dawn" -- with a new featurette from 20th Century Fox.
A new short called "Rise to Dawn" has been released to help fill in viewers on the must-see events between the two installments. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.
Ahead of the July 11 release, the short (released via MSN) incorporates footage from Rise of the Planet of the Apes to verse audiences on the severity of the Simian Flu. News clips, photos and search engine queries compose the 90-second video, which lands on a haunting street art-style warning of the genetically-evolved apes.
