The final trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has arrived and it truly gives us that epic scope that previous teasers have only hinted at.
As was evident from that first Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer, Gary Oldman is the leader of what humans have survived the “simian” flu that ravaged the planet and left only a handful of humans alive. He has blamed the apes for the disease that we all know was started by James Franco in his lab in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Oldman is ready to mount a war to “save the human race.”
Meanwhile, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell believe that a peace can be achieved between humans and apes. And as you see in the above teaser, Clarke even develops a close friendship with Caesar (Andy Serkis).
As we stated in our 9 things we learned from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes footage, there is a whole lot of heart in this picture. Sure, there are major action sequences, but there will be an emotional undercurrent that will make those moments even more powerful.
