Given the title of the film, it’s pretty obvious what the synopsis of this film is going to be. Some bad shit is about to befall humanity and the apes are going to reap all the benefits. So how about an actual surprise? We’ve also learned about two new actors who have joined the film. First, here’s the official synopsis:
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.
The film, being directed by Matt Reeves boasts an impressive cast of actors that includes: Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Kodi Smit-MCPhee, Kirk Acevedo, and Judy Greer. However, two more names have been added to the roster. Joining the cast are Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) and Enrique Murciano (Traffic).
Will the new actors be on the side of apes or humans? It’s too early to say, but we’ll find out for sure when the film drops on May 23, 2014.
