Caesar and his ape army are back in the latest Planet Of The Apes installment, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. As the human race struggles to rebuild after a devastating viral outbreak a decade earlier, the growing tension between horse-riding apes and the remaining humans is palpable. Is war imminent? Can humans and apes find common ground, possibly through our shared love of horses? Why did we ever trust James Franco with important genetic research? The film opens nationwide July 11, but The A.V.

“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.”
