This science fiction sequel to the 2011 film “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” follows a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Earache’s incredible Andy Serkis) as they are 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.

With intelligence and emotional resonance to match its stunning special effects, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an exciting and ambitious burst of sci-fi achievement.

For lovers of the Apes franchise, this provides a perfect opportunity to see Andy give another outstanding performance from within the motion capture suit.

See it in cinemas from Thursday 17th July.
