One of the most surprising hits of recent years was Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and it set a new standard for prequels and reboots.

Of course the continuing story of Caesar and his not-so-merry band of brothers is our focus next year as the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, hits our screens.

Director Matt Reeves just tweeted this new poster with the words. ‘Here… He… Comes…” and the DotPotA website had the rest. There was also confirmation that the first trailer for the film would hit on the 18th of December.

Yikes. (Click to watch them grow!)
