20th Century Fox has released the first posters for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  Details on the plot are still scarce, but we know that it will continue building to the original 1968 film, there will be more ape talking, and an attempt to balance Caesar’s story wit the story of the surviving humans.  But people don’t show up to a Planet of the Apes movie for the homo sapiens.  They want the apes, and these posters give Caesar and his compatriots a close-up.  The war paint is interesting because it raises the question of why they paint their faces at all.  Are they at war with other apes and/or the humans?  Is it an attempt to find an identity and display individuality?  I really enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes, so I’m eager to find out what director Matt Reeves has in store.

Hit the jump to check out the posters along with a PSA from the “The Office of Public Health Awareness” about how to protect yourself from Simian Flu.  Reeves tweeted that we can expect to see the first trailer on December 18th at 6:00am PST.  In addition to Andy Serkis reprising his role as Caesar, the film also stars Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Judy Greer, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Toby KebbellDawn of the Planet of the Apes opens July 11, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:

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.
