“One of the most intelligent and entertaining big-studio releases of the summer so far.” Dana Steves, Slate
It’s easy to lose count of the films made of the complex Planet

reinvention in 2001 by Tim Burton and this new version, with
versions in 2011, 2014 and a third being prepared for 2016 -, which
have all been based on Pierre Boulle’s book published in 1963. In
Dawn of The Planet of Apes, the ever-increasing number of apes, led
by Caesar, have to decide between coexisting peacefully with
humans and attacking them to ensure their safety.
