WATCH: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ new trailer
MANILA, Philippines –Man and ape will once again collide, as seen in the new trailer of Dawn of the Planet of Apes.
In the movie directed by Matt Reeves, a group of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis) is threatened by human survivors after most of them were wiped out by a virus was unleashed. Caesar meets Malcolm (Jason Clarke) who lost his wife to the deadly virus, and eventually become friends.
The apes and humans were able to forge a fragile peace but it proved to be short-lived. Now both sides face possible war to determine who will live and who will be wiped out.
According to the press release, Jason Clarke said that Caesar and Malcolm must face choices compromises and decisions. They must also at the same time protect their kind.
“There’s a lot of mistrust and throwing of blame on both sides,” the actor. “From the point of view of the humans, there’s a lot of anger about how mankind has suffered because of the virus. The humans wrongly blame the apes for causing the virus, though humans actually created the virus in a lab a decade earlier.”
Distributed by Warner Brothers, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens this July in the Philippines. –Rappler.com
