The first poster for Dawn of The Planet Of The Apes, and confirmation that the trailer is due next week...

Another one of next summer's blockbusters is starting to show its hand, as 20th Century Fox has released the first poster for Matt Reeves' Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.

Reeves takes over the director's chair from Rupert Wyatt, who successfully rebooted the franchise with Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes in 2010. And we hear that a full trailer for the new movie will arrive next Wednesday.

In the meantime, here's that poster. The release of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes has been moved forward in the US, to July 11th 2014. That's the slot that was held by Fast & Furious 7, which is now expected to be delayed (although that's not been confirmed). The film is marked for an unconfirmed day in July 2014 in the UK right now.

Underneath the main poster is a further trio of posters that popped up on the Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes website. And we'll have the trailer next week...

'Rise of the England Fans'?

Looking forward to hearing what Michael Giacchino does with the score!

Gorilla Street Hooligans?

Love it. Rise of the Apes was one of my favourites of 2011, and hopefully this will be a stronger sequel with a wider scope. Though did they have to call it Dawn of the Planet of the Apes? That's pretty much an awful title. Couldn't have called it Dawn of the Apes, like Rise was originally going to be called?

They mixed the two titles up

completely agree it really couldn't be worse, the whole concept of the first movie was the dawning of the apes. and this new one charts their rise. someone mucked that one up

Rise fell flat for me, though it was a bit better than the Tim Burton remake. My issue is with modern film style in general, the quick-cut pace of everything which leaves no room to breathe and little room for characterization.

That said, I wonder if the apes will be more humanoid this time round. That would be something.

I think the clue was in the title of the last film... 'rise'?

Wasn't the whole concept of the first film the Apes rising up out of captivity? It ended with them in a little colony in Muir Woods and them being immune from the plague that began to spread through the humans. They didn't start to fight against mankind to the point where they become the dominant species on the planet. This film (from what I understand) IS about the beginning of their domination over what is left of mankind, hence this is the 'dawn of the planet of the apes' not the 'colony of the apes' as they achieved in the last one..

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......... Ooby do!
