There’s a lesson in the first clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. When an ape comes up to you, and he’s all playful and trying to do shots of booze with you, don’t trust it. And most importantly, don’t let him get your machine gun away from you while you laugh at him!
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has released this first clip and up until now, from the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer, you get the idea that Gary Oldman’s character wants to wipe all apes off the planet.
Meanwhile, we know that Caesar (Andy Serkis) is reluctant to start a war and with his friendship with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell, he hopes to wage a peace.
But, what this first clip truly shows is that there is an element in the ape community that wants to wipe all humans off the map. I’d say this guy is off to a good start.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes also stars Judy Greer and is from director Matt Reeves. Look for it July 11 and until then, watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes online to be all sorts of ready for the big sequel.
