Trailer: “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”

The first trailer has arrived for the highly anticipated sequel to “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” the successful reboot of the ‘Apes’ franchise. Matt Reeves directs this $120 million-budget outing which is targeting a July 11th 2014 release.

The film is set a decade after Rise’s post-credits sequence where a devastating virus has wiped out much of humanity. Caesar now leads a growing nation of genetically evolved apes which is threatened by a band of human survivors. A fragile peace proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war.
