You damn dirty second ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ trailer! If you’ve been on the fence between the first and international trailer or from the various clips that have shown the decay of our cities for the upcoming film – today’s trailer might push you over the edge.
So far the majority of the early content we have been seeing has been through the eyes of the human perspective. That being said, the humans aren’t the only intelligent creatures in this film as we all know the Apes not only have risen up, but in the end, they take over the world (if the original 1968 film is where this rebooted series is headed towards). So with the apes being just as important as humanity right now, this trailer gives us a view of what is going on through the apes’ perspective. We see what they’ve been doing for the past four years and why the war between ape and human is once again rising! Of course, if you really want to know why this is happening you can always read some spoilers on what humanity is up to.
The main interesting point that we are seeing so far is that while the apes appear to be learning to read and write, only Casesar is able to speak in this film. I’m wondering if that will change by the very end of the movie to lead into a third installment to the franchise. I’m also loving how we see both humanity and ape picking their own various weapons for preparing to go to war. While this and the other trailers have shown that we’ll be seeing a new batch of humans in the film, it is interesting that they found a way to make James Franco have a cameo even if he didn’t know he would be in it at all.
Are you excited to see human and ape go to war? Do you think they will end this franchise with a recreation of the original film that fits with what they’ve already made? Share your thoughts below!
