All you needed to tell us to get our butts in the theater to see 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is that it's a sequel to the fantastic 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' but these awesome trailers and clips are certainly sweetening the deal. The marketing barrage continues today with the release of two new clips from the film and a live Google+ hangout that will give fans a look at "exclusive content," which we assume is ad-speak for "new footage."

On last night's 'Conan,' host Conan O'Brien and Andy Serkis talked quite a bit about some of his best roles, which Serkis then gleefully imitated for the entire crowd. Ever wonder what it would sound like if Gollum and Caesar the ape had a chat? Wonder no more.

The apes are comin' home to roost, y'all. A new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' poster has arrived and has brought with it two of the most exciting aspects of the sequel: apes with guns on horses.

The upcoming 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' pics up some time later, with most humanity decimated while ape civilization thrives.
