Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is about a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar that is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
Twentieth Century Fox will release Dawn of the Planet of the Apes worldwide July 11th, 2014. For more information, visit dawnofapes.com.
