Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Trailer: The War Begins

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Where that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes teaser embodied the word “teaser,” the first true trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has arrived and previews what appears to be one amazing epic. Caesar is coming into his own as a leader, and as a mysterious virus continues to plague the human race, Caesar and his ape kind are taking advantage and beginning their war on what’s left of humans -- all in an effort to take over the world.

The trailer does a great job of introducing the world of the film as it is now. Humans are fighting for survival and just starting to regroup after four years of horror. And that last shot of the trailer that slowly pulls back from Caesar's eyes to the ape battle formation... just brilliant.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes brings back Andy Serkis as Caesar, with Judy Greer also jumping into the motion capture suit to play an ape. The cast is rounded out by Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Kirk Acevedo.

The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters July 11, 2014.
