Check out a full gallery of Marvel Comic Con Exclusives below. Read More »

Nelson Carvajal has edited the two movies into a trailer titled “Apehood” (which also includes footage from Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Both Dawn and Boyhood are in theaters now, make time to see both of these films on the big screen.
