New Viral Video for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Explains Simian Flu Evolution


A new viral video has been released for the sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes". And what better use for a "viral" video than that of explaining the evolution of the Simian flu which broke out at the end of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and, in the 10 years between the two movies, has risen to decimate the human population. Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield") directed the sequel from a script by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Mark Bomback. The cast features Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Judy Greer, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Toby Kebbell.

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opens on July 11, 2014.

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."
