There’s a remarkable moment with a bear in this trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. it not only introduces a new colour to the logistics of life on Earth in a post-virus future, it ruffles up some assumptions you might make about how the Apes live.
As far as I can tell, the protagonist of this film is Caesar, an ape. That’s certainly novel, definitely ambitious and, from the 30-some minutes I’ve seen, very successful indeed. I can’t wait to see the rest.
