Teaser for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Second Trailer

In anticipation of the second trailer’s debut on May 8th, 20th Century Fox has released a teaser for the next Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer.

What we got is a very short snippet of footage from the sequel, which hits theaters on July 11th.

The Matt Reeves-directed follow-up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set ten years after that movie, and focuses on Caesar as he attempts to lead the colony of apes who he led to freedom from captivity several years earlier. Meanwhile, a virus has wiped out most of humanity, but those left are fighting for survival.

The film stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.

Check it out below and stay tuned for the full-length version that will be released next week.

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.
