In anticipation of the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer being released next week, FOX has offered a little tease of what's to come on Instagram. This looks like it's going to be a great sequel. They showed off really cool footage at WonderCon last month, some of which was really intense and frightening. They explained that this movie focuses on a point where the humans and apes could have worked things out and coexisted. Of course, we all know that doesn't work out too well for the humans. I'm really interested to see how this all plays out. In a previous interview, Andy Serkis discussed the story a bit, saying:
"This is now a community of about 2,000 apes. For the first eight years [after the humanity-devastating virus], the apes were looking down from Muir Woods to San Francisco and could see lights and fires, but now it's gone very quiet. Until this day in our film when this small band of humans comes up. That's suddenly a huge, dividing moment in the lives of these apes. There are some particularly strong reactions to the humans and that's the course of the story."
The movie will be released in theaters on July 11th. Stay tuned for the new trailer coming out next week!
