Fox Sets Date for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes & ID4-3D

The Fringe is a place where non-horror genre films can get some play on Shock.  These films might be sci-fi, fantasy or action – and certainly contain some horror elements – but will likely be light on scares, or, straight-up “horror.”  Still, they might be of interest to you.

It appears Twentieth Century Fox has a name for its sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters on May 23, 2014.  Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the 2011 smash, returns to direct. The returning producers are Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

The rest of Fox’s 2013-2014 slate is pretty killer.  Check it out:

On the heels of the $344 million worldwide success of Titanic 3D, the studio and director Roland Emmerich, in conjunction with Stereo 3D, which did the work on Titanic, will produce a top quality 3D version of the iconic Independence Day. ID43D will be released worldwide on July 3, 2013.

Fox, together with Disney and Dreamworks, has shifted the release of Steven Spielberg’s epic Robopocalypse to go worldwide on April 25, 2014, the same weekend that “Avengers” was released internationally this year. Disney distributes domestically. (ID43D now occupies its former release date.)
