Rise of the Planet of the Apes ended with the H7N9 virus spreading across the globe, thus leading to near human extinction. What happens between the end of that film and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes could define what happens in the sequel. Now 20th Century Fox has released a new video detailing the events between the two films. All of this reportedly is a precursor to the release of a brand new trailer.
Hit the jump to see the new featurette for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo, and Judy Greer. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters on July 11.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar 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.
