Even though Twentieth Century Fox's sci-fi sequel 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is still 7 months away at least today it edges that little bit closer. The studio have set a 11 July 2014 release date, bringing the opening back by a full week. Not entirely sure why the move but it may have something to do with the recent production halt on James Wan's 'Fast & Furious 7', due to the sad and untimely death of star Paul Walker, which was originally slated for release on the 11th also. 'Dawn' will be helmed by Matt Reeves ('Let Me In') and stars Andy Serkis ('The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'), Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Gary Oldman ('Bram Stoker's Dracula'), Keri Russell ('Dark Skies'), Toby Kebbell ('Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time'), Kodi Smit-McPhee ('ParaNorman'), Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo ('Fringe') and Judy Greer.
"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."
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' will open on 11 July 2014.
