Rise of the Planet of the Apes surprised everyone in 2011 by being the rare reboot that actually had something to say. Now it's time for the inevitable follow-up, only this time Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) is the person in the director's chair. Andy Serkis, the talented actor behind memorable motion-capture performances like Gollum and King Kong, returns as the ape Caesar, and from the looks of things tensions between humanity and the hyper-intelligent apes have only escalated in the years since the first film. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens on July 11th.
