Trailerwatch: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Final Trailer

Opinions may vary online on the effectiveness of the last PotA franchise entry, but there’s no question that Brit helmer Rupert Wyatt restored an on-screen lustre and off-screen box-office to a major Fox franchise. The secret weapon was Andy Serkis and his mo-cap company, and it looks like they’re justifiably taking centre stage this time out under Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves.

Those wanting to go in cold (like our esteemed editor) would do well to avoid this trailer also, but for the rest of us, the tantalising glimpses we’ve been given over the course of the marketing suggest a film building on the depth of the first one rather than just trying to get to the action.  When it comes to SF drama made of characters over f/x, it looks like the Apes will rule this summer once again.
