No one expected Rise of the Planet of the Apes to be any good, and we certainly didn’t think it would be great. Its follow-up, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has considerably more to live up to.
Dawn has several things working in its favor. First, anything Andy Serkis touches with his magical motion capture body turns to gold (or at least it should). Second, it’s got a killer cast, most notably one of the most underrated actors ever (still??), Gary Oldman. Third, it’s already bumped up its marketing game with some seriously cool interactive graphics.
The film’s new website explains, through a series of images, what’s transpired in the years since Rise. Check out some of the first photos and posters from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to see what’s in store for our primate protagonists (‘cause we all know we’re the bad guys here, right?).
