One of our Top 17 summer movies of 2014 (it sits right near the top) is coming home on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download -- Dawn of the Planet of the Apes!

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes DVD

The film that takes place 10 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes finds a landscape that has the human race utterly decimated by the so-called Simian Flu and the apes themselves have formed quite a nice community where their lives are as close to bliss as can be.

As we stated in our Dawn of the Planet of the Apes review, the film is a stunner and filmmaker Matt Reeves has truly crafted a thriller with a whole lot of heart and messages about humanity (even when we’re talking about apes!).

Fox has announced plans for the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download and fans can look for the flick to arrive on November 11. And given that the film made $680 million at the box office, there are quite a lot of people who want this powerful and thrilling tale in their collection.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Gary Oldman, Andy Serkis (back as Caesar!), Jason Clarke and Keri Russell and finds the cast of humans and mo-cap apes trying to find a way to live together. See, neither really knew that the other was so close until one fateful day a group led by Clarke and Russell stumbles on a couple of ape scouts and a fireball of tension ensues.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes home video features over two hours of bonus features that has us utterly enthralled.

Apes with Shotguns!
You know, humans pretty much should throw in the towel when the apes master the art of shooting a shotgun!
