DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES - Poster Art and Prequel Shorts

A few new pieces of poster art have surfaced for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The poster above was created by Janee Meadows, and it's filled with a variety of characters making up an ape skull. The first poster below was created by UK artist Matt Needle, and it puts the spotlight on the ape leader Caesar. That's followed by posters from Mainger, Zombie Yeti, and Orlando Arocena. I really like these because they aren't the tradition-style pieces of crap that we're used to seeing in movie poster art.

I've also included three prequel short films that were created for the movie that focus on the 10 years between the first movie and this sequel. Each short was made by a different director, and they follow the progression of the "simian flu" virus that ends up killing most of the human population. 

The Matt Reeves-directed sequel stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo, and Judy Greer. It's set to hit theaters on July 11th, 2014.
