I have to say, so far 2014 has been pretty lackluster as far as summer blockbusters go. There was the odd good one, like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but I found myself underwhelmed by even X-Men: Days of Future Past (not that it was a bad movie, mind you). Anyway, all of this is just to reiterate my thoughts on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as we approach July – usually the biggest month for summer blockbusters. I still cannot believe how much I’m looking forward to this movie. I mean, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was surprisingly good, so it kinda sets the stage for the sequel to be amazing, but this trailer…this trailer is something else. I did not expect this film to look anywhere near this cool.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comes out July 11, 2014.
