You might have missed this new TV spot for Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes last night as you ran to the bathroom for a quick voiding of the bowels while watching the season finale of The Walking Dead last night. If you did, don’t worry, we’ve got it here for you. It’s what we do.
There’s also a new movie poster out:
Caesar (Andy Serkis) doesn’t look very happy holding his child. In fact he looks kinda pissed off. There are gears turning in that simian brain, and I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of such dark thoughts.
As a long time Planet of the Apes fan, I’m hopeful that we’ll see some of the key moments recreated in this rebooted series. Doesn’t have to be exactly the same, just a significant nod to the past will do for me.
Ape will not kill Ape!
As short as this clip is, it still packs quite a wallop for Planet of the Apes fans eager to see the sequel. Before we go into any details, why don’t you take a look.
What did you think of the clip? As that Human voice says:
You know the scary thing about them?
They don’t need power. Lights, heat – nothing.
That’s their advantage.
That’s what makes them stronger.
That opening scene looks like the group of apes entering through a FEMA camp gate, which must be related to the population shattering virus that sweeps through mankind, but I’m still hoping we’ll get a scene of the apes looting a military base or National Guard armory.
The addition of Gary Oldman to the cast still has me excited. He’s going to help take this franchise to the next level. Here’s a couple of production posters and stills to help you get into that Planet of the Apes mood.
On a side note, for all you new Planet of the Apes fans, or those who just want to see a childhood favorite again, you can still check out the streaming cartoon version of Return to the Planet of the Apes over at Hulu. It’s a fun series and you’ll recognize that theme music right off.
