The Six Best Things About the New Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Trailer

Categories: Film and TV

It's no secret that I'm entirely too excited for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Yeah, I'm looking forward to watching Godzilla next week, and I have high hopes for Guardians of the Galaxy, but at the end of the day my movie year revolves around the continuing adventures of Caesar and company.

Yesterday we got a new trailer for the film and, coupled with the reports from those lucky enough to have already seen parts of the film, I can barely contain my excitement. With so many films with potential on the horizon and Captain America 2 being an early home run, are we on the brink of the best summer blockbuster season since 2008 (Iron Man, Speed Racer, Wall-E, Hellboy 2, The Dark Knight)? Fingers crossed.

While we count down the days until July 11, let's talk about all the rad things in this new trailer.

Apes on Horseback

All heroes should ride a horse at some point. It just makes them look epic, no matter what time period the movie takes place in.

The Door Opens

Awesome shot. Also, this is a good time to mention that I love what they're doing with Caesar's voice in the film.

The James Franco Cameo

Although I wasn't a huge fan of the human story in the first film (although I understand why the people behind the film might have thought it necessary), I'm glad that they're not completely ignoring it in the sequel. It would be weird to ignore Franco's character altogether, and it's always good to have a hero with a backstory.
