This time, the movie centers on:
…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.
Or, as Reeves explained at Fox’s Comic-Con
The story is Caesar-centric, set in a grander scale. This film is about how we get from a pandemic human virus shown at the end of Rise to The planet of the apes as seen in the original movie.
In other words, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
will show us what happens when a group of human survivors suddenly show up, and how the apes community react.
Caesar, on the other hand, is now a father, has a wife, a teenage son and an infant child. He’s a leader with responsibility and he’s trying to bring some of the humanity that he grew up with to the ape community.
Well, one thing is for sure, this definitely looks promising, hope you agree?
