As the year winds down, we’re looking forward to some of the most anticipated science fiction movies of 2014. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes should be a nice follow-up to 2011′s surprise hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes. With a new director in Matt Reeves, Dawn is expected to branch off from what director Rupert Wyatt built with Rise. Although Reeves has been very secretive with Dawn, it’s believed that audiences will soon get a chance to watch some footage from the sequel film.
As reported on ComingSoon, the first teaser trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is finished and is expected to screen in front of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which hits theaters everywhere on December 13. While this isn’t the first time audiences will see footage from the new Apes film, it will be the first time to see how the new director establishes tone in Dawn. In an interview, Matt Reeves said he wanted Dawn to work on an emotional level as well as Rise did in 2011. He also hopes that Dawn will be “emotional and thrilling as you watch the apes come into being.”
