Must Watch: First 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Teaser Trailer Hits
"I need to speak to Caesar!" Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Matt Reeves-directed sequel to 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. While James Franco is not back, we do get Andy Serkis returning (in motion-capture) as Caesar, the ape who is now leading a revolution. We also get a glimpse at newcomers Jason Clarke, Judy Greer, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee and of course Gary Oldman. I really, really love the tone and dark, brooding sci-fi feeling of this movie, I think Reeves is really pushing himself to bring us something fantastic. And you thought we'd already seen some great sequels, just wait until this hits next summer. Fire up the quick first teaser below, with the volume up!
Watch the first teaser trailer for Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, direct from YouTube:
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors. 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. Besides Serkis, the apes cast includes Judy Greer as Cornelia & Toby Kebbell as Koba. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rupert Wyatt's revival of the sci-fi franchise Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Directing is Matt Reeves, of Let Me In and Cloverfield previously, from a script written by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver. 20th Century Fox has Dawn of the Planet of the Apes scheduled for 3D release on July 11th next summer.
