We’ve got a week until the scheduled release of the second trailer for director Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but to help peak your interest the Ape-Powers-That-Be have posted this teaser to the Internet. Click through to get your damn dirty ape paws on it!
As a long time Planet of the Apes fan, it really touches all my Planet of the Apes buttons when I see those apes on horses. It takes me right back to that Saturday afternoon, sitting in the theater next to my Dad, trying not to spill that huge coke and bag of buttery popcorn all over that sticky theater floor. Then it happened, I looked up and BAM!!! That huge horn sounds and there he is, that Ape on a horse, and my life was changed forever.
But enough of my reminiscing, let’s get to that teaser.
I can feel my Planet of the Apes senses tingling all over now. This movie looks like it is going to bring some of the greatest moments from the original series to the big screen again. Apes on horses, Ape shall not kill Ape… maybe I should be in my bunk.
What do you want to see brought back in this latest incarnation?
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theater screens July 11th, starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.
Will you be there? I promise I’ll be wearing pants.
