Matt Reeves’ “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” arrives with ten new images from the upcoming sci-fi sequel where apes have taken over the planet and devastated the cities and only a crazed Gary Oldman can save us. Or so he says. Personally, I can’t trust a crazed Gary Oldman. A regular Gary Oldman? That’s another story. And oh, the apes have apparently also learned how to use shotguns. Which makes me wonder — did they also learn how to make shotgun shells and bullets, too? Those are some mighty big, hairy fingers to be operating delicate machinery. I’m just sayin’.
Anyways, check out the ten new images below. When the apes start toting gats, we be in danger, kids.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is 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.
Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, and Judy Greer.
Endangering this July 11th.
