Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of our most anticipated films of the year, and for good reason. 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes managed to reboot the stagnant franchise while successfully reinvigorating our excitement in the science fiction tale. Dawn hits theaters on July 11th, and 20th Century Fox has been impressively patient with the film's marketing campaign. Until now, we've seen a teaser trailer (released five months ago), a few images, and a couple viral videos, but no substantial plot details or clear picture about what Reeves has in store for us. Thankfully, that's about to change, as two new full-length trailers have been released, an "Official" trailer and an "International" trailer. They finally give us a real glimpse at the newest chapter in this franchise, and plenty to dissect. Check out the trailers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sHMCRaS3ao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVXYl1URtmY The film looks fantastic, and should hopefully surpass our expectations when it finally hits cinemas. Until then, let's take a look at what we've learned from these plot-heavy trailers.
