Twentieth Century Fox has pushed the Matt Reeves-directed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes deep into summer with a new July 18, 2014 release date, two months later than the May schedule. In the prequel’s sequel, “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.” Andy Serkis, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Judy Greer and Jocko Sims all star.
Also, Fox is hoping for a massive 2015 as they’ve announced Independence Day 2, the sequel to Roland Emmerich’s box office smash 1996 from starring Will Smith. The first movie, which was kept pretty secret until closer to release, grossed over $800M worldwide. In it, “The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy. Fighting superior technology, Man’s best weapon is the will to survive.“
