We’ve got a few release date announcements that starts with Twentieth Century Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel that will infect theaters come May 23, 2014. Director Rupert Wyatt returns as does star Andy Serkis as the ape “Caesar”. Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa, Scott Burns penned the screenplay that “Continues the story set forth in last year’s critical and commercial hit movie featuring simians that are given human intelligence and subsequently break out of their facility. At the same time, a virus breaks out that causes the collapse of human society. The new project is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society’s new rulers.”
Not horror, and the only time we’ll report this, Fox will be reaching into moron’s wallets and plucking $15 to watch a post-converted 3-D version of Roland Emmerich’s 1996 sumer epic Independence Day, which starred Will Smith, Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum. It opens July 3, 2013. We hope this single mention will help save you a handful of cash. “The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy. Fighting superior technology, Man’s best weapon is the will to survive.”
Laslty, Buena Vista revealed that Stephen Spielberg’s Robopocalypse, penned by Drew Goddard, will not blast into theaters April 25, 2014, almost a year later than originally planned. Based on the novel of the same name by Daniel H. Wilson, the plot explores the fate of the human race following a robot uprising.
