Caesar looks like he's ready for war in this first trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dec. 18, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

As promised on Monday, the first trailer for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES has been released, and it's an excellent tease for Matt Reeves' upcoming film. The trailer starts with a speech by Gary Oldman about what has happened since the events in the last film, and there isn't any ape actions until the very end of the preview, but even then it's just a glimpse of Caesar and his primate army. I may sound like I'm complaining, but I'm actually really pleased with this trailer. It reveals just enough in my opinion, and there's a quiet intensity to it that I'm really digging.

"It's about giving us the hope to rebuild, and reclaim the war we lost."

Synopsis:

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.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES also stars Keri Russell, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, and Judy Greer, and is set to hit theaters on July 11, 2014.

Yup

This is definitely directed by Reeves. It looks incredibly dark and will likely be the best in the series.

I didn't think the sequel would skip this far ahead but I do love the direction it's headed in and Gary Oldman's leading a promising cast.

Shit just got real. It looks like Gary Oldman is going to be the human antagonists which is a great choice he can play a villain with the best of them.

Yeah that's true I guess I meant that he will be the antagonists opposite Caesar, not necessary the villain.

I think the villains in these movies, at least ROTPA and this movie, the villain role is really in the eye of the beholder. I mean, are the humans really evil for trying to survive in a world slowly being taken over by damn dirty apes? Or are the apes really evil for trying to make a society for themselves without those pesky humans always making trouble?

Rise was surprisingly good! This looks like its going to be legit. Hard to tell, but I hope this is Oldman's return to playing a villain. Since he landed Commissioner Gordon, he's been playing good guys; and sorry Gary, but it ran its course, because he plays an awesome bad guy

Nice teaser, Ceasar. Think I'll go watch Jim Carey play Ebeneezer. Or maybe, I'll just listen to some Wheezer.

Ugh, this is going to suck.

I really dislike prequels, but the Rise of the PotA movie actually turned out to be very good. This just looks like crap though. We all know how it is going to turn out, the apes win, we all die and get sold into slavery. There isn't much more than can do.

what exactly "looked like crap"? the kick ass CGI? the decent voiceover? Gary fucking Oldman? What did you see in that 90 seconds the rest of us missed?

I am really excited for this one. Looks sort of like Battle for the Planet of the Apes but with out a peaceful ending. I am assuming the last film will be the astronauts that were lost on the Mars mission to come back home and it will be more of a remake of Planet of the Apes.

Looks good. But does anyone else feel like we went from "A" to "C". It's like they let underpants gnomes have control over the story arc. I was hoping James Franco would have a part in this too. Not that he;s so good, he just had good chemistry with Caeser in the first one.

Damn dirty apes.

I really like Rise of the planet of the apes and what they're doing with this franchise. Caesar looks to be a true warrior in this one. I wonder how much after "Rise" this takes place. Maybe the apes will actually talk speak in here.
