Apes Sequel Set For 2014

Some days are clearly designated as “dump a load of release dates and announcements all in one big press release" day. Such as today, with 20th Century Fox announcing that the Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes sequel, currently titled Dawn* Of The Planet Of The Apes, will howl its way into US cinemas on May 23, 2014.

Not much is known about the Apes sequel, beyond the fact that Rupert Wyatt will be back in the director’s chair, Andy Serkis will once again play Caesar and the plot will be set a little further down the line towards the simian domination of Earth.

Shortly after that, we’re scheduled to meet up with Magneto and co once more for the fast-developing X-Men: First Class sequel. That one doesn’t have a title currently, presumably because the studio and director Matthew Vaughn have rejected all of the silly ideas we’ve broached so far. So if you want someone to blame for the film not being called X-Men: Parcelforce, don't come complaining to us. The movie is set to arrive on July 18, 2014.

Both movies will be following in the shadow of another big release, as Steven Spielberg plans to unleash Robopocalypse upon an unsuspecting world. Set your smart phones to begin counting down to their freedom and your doom, as it all kicks off on April 25, 2014. That's a change from the previously announced date of July 3, 2013. Still, something big has moved in instead...

*We’ve met Dawn. She’s a lovely lady. Soft hands.

And what exactly is wrong with Robopocalypse, may I ask...Don't hate just because you don't like Spielberg... More

I think the wait for two years is undertstandable
I mean, let's face it, if you want to make a great film, you need all the time. If they just fast-tracked these and release them next year, then the films themselves are gonna be a total mess. And let's not forget, next year is already fully pack with films I'm looking forward to such as THE WORLD'S END (Pegg & Wright's next Cornetto film), KICK-ASS 2, MAN OF STEEL, the second STAR TREK film by J.J. Abrams, PACIFIC RIM (Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming monster movie), GRAVITY (Alfonso Cuaron's More

RE: Dawn?
L: matsnowie Dawn makes sense in a way, but wouldn't War for the Planet of the Apes sound better?ounds like the opening of 2001.ote] whats wrong with that? Apes and 2001 have always been sort of connected...both released in 1968 and feature apes, plus the Burton remake was out in 2001 and contained various references (the pods, "Lt Bowman report to the bridge", interior of the space station wasn’t unlike Discovery, Leo watching videos of his pals like Frank Poole, time displacemen More

Robopocalypse?
All this seems fine, but are you actually serious when you tell me that Speilberg (who doesn't deserve his name spelt correctly) is genuinely going to release a film with the title of 'Robopocalypse'? It sounds like the title of a film you'd see on a poster in the background of the least imaginative episode of Futurama. More

Dawn sounds like a good title, although wouldn't it have made more sense if they were switched? Surely the apes first gathering together was the dawn, then as they began to evolve it was the rise? Anyway, I'm just being a pedantic percy. Looking forward to this one! More

Awesome. It's a bit of a wait, but i'd rather wait and get a great sequel than suffer through a slapdash scrabble to reach a release date of a film. More
