20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the anticipated sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Andy Serkis reprises his role as Caesar as he leads a revolution against human survivors. The teaser is very brief but we also get our first look at Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, and Gary Oldman. Check out the teaser below.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
I’m really digging the darker, sci-fi tone of this. The rest of the cast includes Kodi Smit-McPhee, Judy Greer, and Toby Kebbell. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield and Let Me In) directs the sequel from a script by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to arrive in theaters on July 11th, 2014. Are you looking forward to this?
