Watch: Three Planet of the Apes Short Films Bridge Gap Between Rise & Dawn Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.02.2014
One, five and ten years after the fact...
While it's only been three years since Rise of the Planet of the Apes, it's been a full decade within the universe of the film by the time Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens. A lot has happened within that time and in order to bring viewers up to speed, Twentieth Century Fox has teamed with Motherboard for three short films documenting what happened one year, five years and ten years after the release of the simian flu at the end of Rise. You can check them out below!
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Jon Eyez, Enrique Murciano, Terry Notary, Judy Greer, Nick Thurston, Karin Konoval, Keir O'Donnell and Kevin Rankin and opens on July 12th. In the film, Caesar and his army of apes are threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. Apes and humans are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.
