Fox has released a teaser photo for Matt Reeve's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Looks like the apes can shoot guns now. The image came with the following tag line:
Evolution becomes revolution.
The sequel will pick up where Rise of the Planet of the Apes left off. There are no details on the story or plot. We all know what the outcome will be; this is just the ride that's going to take us there. Here's a little synopsis:
“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” continues the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar (Andy Serkis) presides over the fall of human civilization. After the apes break out of their facility, a virus breaks out that causes the collapse of human society. The new project is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society’s new rulers.
The screenplay is being written by Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, and Rick Jaffa, and I hope Reeve does a solid job bringing the movie to life. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to be released on Memorial Day 2014.
