Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes Fast & Furious 7's release dateWith Fast & Furious 7 on hold after the tragic death of leading man Paul Walker, 20th Century Fox has moved to shift up the release date of its upcoming sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes a week, with the film now occupying Fast 7′s planned release date of July 11th 2014.

The follow-up to 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes sees Matt Reeves (Let Me In) directing a cast that includes the returning Andy Serkis as Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In), Enrique Murciano (Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line), and Judy Greer (13 Going on 30). 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.
