There's a ten-year gap between Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes... so what happened?
A lot's gone down between 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the latest installment, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes -- the movies are set 10 years apart, which leaves a lot of untold stories in between. If you want to get up to speed before seeing Dawn this weekend, you'll want to check out these three short films, created by Motherboard Productions and Fox that delve in to just what became of the human race after the Simian Flu outbreak in Rise.
The first video shows the aftermath of the Simian Flu, the second shows humanity's struggle to survive, and the third follows the path of a single gun over the past decade of the story. For tie-in media, they're surprisingly moving -- and definitely worth watching before you hit the theater to see Dawn. Watch the first of the trio above and check out the others below.
