IGN revealed the new poster for the upcoming summer blockbuster Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and it looks pretty damn sweet! Studio-produced movie posters often lack creativity or iconic imagery but this poster seems to be an exception. Seeing Caesar on horseback with gun in hand set against a destroyed San Francisco definitely feels iconic and gets me very excited for the Matt Reeves-directed sequel. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Kodi Smith-McPhee and Judy Greer and arrives in theaters on July 11.
I really liked Rise of the Planet of the Apes (I’m a fan of the Planet of the Apes franchise in general) so I’m really looking forward to seeing Caesar’s story continue as the apes begin to take over the earth and we see this rebooted franchise start to parallel the story of the original 1968 film. This is one franchise that I really hope continues to be successful, both financially and in quality of story, as I hope to see many more Planet of the Apes movies in the future.
What do you think of the new poster? Are you just as excited for the next installment in the Planet of the Apes franchise?
