Come July 11, our planet is no longer . . . ours. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes place after the events of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and things are looking bleak for the human race. Even if you didn't see the first one, this sequel is worth checking out for the incredible ape-effects and to see Andy Serkis reprise his role as Caesar. Bonus: Jason Clarke.
