Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Featurette: What Happened Between 2 Movies?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to invade theaters July 11 and it picks up 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

So, what happened between those two movies?

20th Century Fox has released a featurette that brilliantly gets us up to date on how we got from there to here… and it’s not pretty.

As we learned in that first Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer, the Simian Flu is blamed for bringing the human population to the brink of extinction. Gary Oldman’s character has advocated a full-out war on the ape population as a way to ensure that the flu itself becomes extinct.

Of course we all know that the flu began in James Franco’s lab and has nothing to do with those simians at all! 

The above featurette is truly fascinating and we suspect it will be the beginning of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, or at least included at some point to catch audiences up on the goings-on of this world. 

Watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes online and get truly prepared for the Dawn.
