If you’ve watched the most recent Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer, there are a number of striking scenes and images, but none quite as memorable as that of Koba (Toby Kebbell), a one-eyed bonobo, outsmarting two humans and stealing their machine gun. In this latest clip from the Matt Reeves-directed film, lets that entire scene play out in nightmarish fashion. What starts as fun and comical, at least to the people involved, takes a harsh turn in short fashion. Let this be a lesson, when fighting super smart apes, never let you guard down or you’re totally screwed.
The story is set up like this: Dawn takes place ten years after the events Rise of the Planet of the Apes. As Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his army of freed apes fled, they inadvertently spread a man made virus, the result of Will’s (James Franco) attempts to reverse Alzheimer’s Disease from the first film. While the apes escape and thrive, nearly half the human population succumbs to the disease, and society crumbles and reverts to a much more primitive state.
