The Rise of the Planet of the Apes remake is one of my favorite films released in the last few years. This is not a joke. That film is a beautifully conceived roller coaster ride of hard-hitting excitement and crushing revelations. Stop reading this and watch it now, if you haven't already done so.

Today, 20th Century Fox released a trailer for the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which you can view below. No gas station, forest, or human being appears to be safe in this new world. I have some theories about where this sequel is going, but I'll hold off from posting them here, and will instead discuss them with you in the comments section below.
