One of the best movie surprises of 2011 was the reboot of Planet of the Apes – and as someone who’s been eagerly awaiting the sequel since that film ended, today’s reveal of the official trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is pretty damn exciting. If you wanted more ape action, we're guessing you're going to be excited too.
The new clip expands a bit on the footage seen at Comic-Con this summer, and features Gary Oldman being Gary Oldman, which is always a plus. Andy Serkis is back as Caesar, too – and the film looks to follow the ongoing events in the ape uprising that threatens humanity’s future.
The trailer is well done – featuring a rousing speech from Oldman intercut with scenes of the continuing struggle and a pulsing score. Then we get a glimpse of Caesar and his brothers before it all ends. Pretty ominous – and cool – stuff.
Check out the clip below. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens next July.
