Next weekend sees the biggest lizard of them all, “Godzilla,” stomping into theatres, but he won’t be the only creature providing a sizzling summer. Primates will be everywhere in July with “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes,” and the latest trailer is here for the anticipated sequel to the surprise franchise redux hit, “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.”
It’s helpful to remember that the trailers for ‘Rise’ really sucked, and clearly Fox got the message. So for the Matt Reeves directed followup, they’ve figured out the tone and upped their game to ensure that people will want more ‘Apes’ in their future. This new film takes place takes place years after rise, with Caesar gaining power after a virus kills of most of the human population. But humans aren’t entirely gone, and pretty soon they’ll be facing off against each other gain, with the stakes certainly raised higher this time around.
