Dawn-of-Apes-boxDawn of the Planet of the Apes was originally scheduled to open in theaters on July 18th, but it's been announced that we'll be seeing it one week early. Fast & Furious 7 was previously the only movie set to open on July 11th, but Fox has moved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes into that weekend as well. This is likely due to the fact that it's expected Universal will delay Fast & Furious 7.

"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 was directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) and stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Harry Potter film series), Keri Russell (The Americans, Mission Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (The Prince of Persia, Wrath of the Titans, Rock N Rolla), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, ParaNorman), Enrique Murciano (Traffic, Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (The Descendants, Three Kings, 13 Going on 30).
