The first trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has been released, and it looks like we're in for one hell of a ride. 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was a surprise hit, and a welcome reboot to the franchise following the underwhelming 2001 "Planet of the Apes" from Tim Burton.
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. This time around, the film features an all-new cast which includes Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Judy Greer. Andy Serkis is reprising his role as 'Caesar'. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theatres on July 11, 2014.
