Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes(2014)
- RatedPG13 /GenreAction, Drama, Science Fiction
Whose side are you on? A new TV spot for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' introduces an army of hairy hominids -- but are they threatening the planet or saving it?
Andy Serkis leads the cast, returning as intelligent ape leader Caesar, top of the tree on a planet ravaged by the virus unleashed at the tail end of 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.
But though its brooding horde of horse-riding chimps are presented in menacing tones, there's no clear indication that Caesar's civilization is the film's main threat.
That might well come from us, the humans, whose surviving groups threaten to destabilize a weakened world and the truce that binds it together.
Joining Serkis are Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Keri Russell and Judy Greer.
Director Matt Reeves, who will also direct a third 'Planet of the Apes' film, previously worked with Smit-McPhee on 2010 horror film 'Let Me In' and with Russell on five episodes of TV series 'Felicity'.
