Caesar & Co. intimidate in “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” Posters


At San Diego Comic-Con 2013, the first teaser footage from the Matt Reeves-directed sequel DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES premiered. It was atmospheric and often beautiful in setting up the future ape-ravaged world this new film exists in, and ended on an image (above) almost exactly like the new character posters. It was a full, intimidating look at Caesar and an army of apes, ready for war. At the time, I referred to it as stark, tough and very thrilling. It continues to be so, and it seems 20th Century Fox is anchoring their promotion for the film in it. 

In DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, “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.” Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and of course, Andy Serkis, star.

The first trailer for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES hits Wednesday, December 18. See the four new character posters below.
