New 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Trailer Reveals Some Menacing Ape Moments

 

We’ve been promised apes on horses and a fierce standoff between simian and human survivors in Matt Reeves' upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A trailer for the film has arrived, revealing what the world looks like a decade after a deadly virus was unleashed, as seen in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
 

 

Andy Serkis’ Caesar leads the genetically evolved apes in the revolution against humanity — now a threat in the form of a group setting up a colony in deserted San Francisco (Gary Oldman — playing a human survivor advocate that abhors the simians — Jason Clarke and Keri Russell). The apes maintain control over Muir Woods along the Pacific Coast, but their peace is short-lived as conflict edges them closer to total war in the fight to become Earth’s dominant species. But Caesar struggles with his own conflict regarding the humans — an internal battle, as the simian was raised by James Franco’s Dr. Will Rodman, his human father figure for nearly a decade.
 
 
The first film was a loose adaptation of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and the new trailer proves Dawn will be closer to Battle for the Planet of the Apes — the fifth and final entry in the 1970s series. Roddy McDowall played Caesar in that film. 
 
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes arrives in theaters on July 11.
