20th Century Fox has released a new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer for director Matt Reeves’ (Let Me In) sequel.  The follow-up takes place 10 years after the events of the first film and finds Caesar (Andy Serkis) attempting to assert his dominance over the apes while a small human colony struggles to survive in San Francisco.  This is a great trailer.  Not only do the visual effects continue to look terrific, but it also seems like the movie has a lot of heart.  Every Ape prequel is basically a tragedy since we know the humans ultimately lose, and Dawn looks like it’s using the fragile relationship between species as the core of the story.  I’m now even more excited for this flick.

Hit the jump to watch the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer.  If you missed any of Steve’s set visit coverage, be sure to check out interviews with Andy SerkisToby KebbellKeri Russell and Gary Oldman, Matt Reeves, and cinematographer Michael Seresin.  The film also stars Jason Clarke, Judy GreerKodi Smit-McPheeKirk Acevedo, and Enrique Murciano.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens July 11th. [Update: We've added the U.S. trailer, which is slightly different than the U.K. one]

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.

    OMG!! This looks so sick! I was surprised like most with the first one, and this one just looks ridiculously good. Can it be July already!?!

  • DjangoBro

    WOW. I got chills… War has BEGUN!!!

  • Golden Graham

    SEEEEERIOUS goosebumps…..Looks absolutely wonderful…Every piece of Caesar’s dialogue gave me chills…..

  • Batzombie

    This looks awesome. Possibly even better than the first.

    • Lee Harvey Cobblepot

      Which is weird, because the first one was SO much better than it had any real right to be. But this looks just as good, if not better. Fucking amazing.

      • The Flobbit

        Rise hit me like a brick to the head. It was absolutely original, fast-paced, brilliantly acted, and with stunning action. But do you know what struck me most? The lack of night scenes. Everything took place in the day, leading to a slick and smooth film, rather than a dark and gritty one.

        It looks like times have changed, as Dawn seems to be taking us to a very dark place indeed.

  • DeathoftheEndless7

    A lot better than the first trailer.

  • neo

    so gary oldman is the antagonist in an apes movie? I AM IN!!!

  • AaronS12

    This looks absolutely amazing. It looks like it will have some great performances, fantastic action sequences and most importantly, an emotionally-fuelled storyline. My expectations for this have only heightened.

    If this turns out as good or even way better than the first, I think this will be another great example on how to reboot a franchise.

  • Joseph M

    Looks good, although the blue colour correction abuse is a bit horrifying.

  • Migz13

    The first one surprised me a lot in a good way. Here’s hoping this sequel is better or at least just as good as the original remake:)

  • Farrell

    Another trailer that gives away the whole fucking movie. Thanks Fox.

    • starchild

      WHat are you talking about? Like we don’t already know how it’s going to end. Remember this is a prequel. The apes win. Nothing really being spoiled here.

      • Farrell

        I’m not talking about the ending. Of course the Apes win. I’m talking about specific plot points withing the narrative, which were not known before this trailer.

      • Kyle Chandler

        I know exactly what you mean. I’ve started to avoid trailers whenever I can. Too many times there are big chunks of the plot entirely given away by the trailer.

        The fact that it is a prequel means that they should keep those threads unspoiled even more, since we know how the overarching story ends.

      • starchild

        Ahhh ok. I see your point.

    Epic, filled with human drama, and stunning action, this is going to be the breakaway film of the summer! The chills I got hearing Andy Serkis’s monkey voice!

  • Faptain America

    Thanks a lot James Franco! Now look what you’ve done.

  • Colin Christian

    Wow! It looks great,story heavy,very cool.

  • cineast4

    Well, it’s pretty much the only summer blockbuster (apart from Godzilla) i’m excited for.
    Looks great.

  • Steven

    OMFG! I’m calling it now: box office champ of 2014!

    • pandapool

      idk about it being box office champ, but i damn sure think it could be the BEST movie of 2014!

    • Mike

      Absolutely no way it even comes close to box office champ but it certainly will do better than the first movie and will solidly it as a top tier franchise that is producing quality films.

  • pandapool

    OMG July cannot come quick enough! This looks absolutely awesome. I really can’t remember the last time I got goosebumps like that from a trailer. And I love the thumbnail to the video with Caesar and Jason Clarke’s character.

    awesome,can’t wait

  • DEADP00L

    I’m going to need some new pants, and a LOT of tissues.

  • NICK НΛRT

    looks great. cant wait for this

  • Grayden

    Franco’s character was not re-cast. His character died during the Simian Flu epidemic. Jason Clarke’s character is a new character.

    Also, maybe now they’ll finally give Serkis some recognition for his work.

  • derek

    Matt Reeves and Jason Clarke are sure to make this an emotional roller coaster. They are both intense people. This movie will probably be the best all summer. Not to mention this is a reboot. And a rarity because so far the reboot is working.

    • Unicron

      I think this franchise knows the true meaning of reboot…fingers crossed for this and Godzilla and Xmen and even Transformers 4 for the craic (I’m in it).

  • DEADP00L

    Anybody else notice the birth scenes are the same exact scenes in both trailers but Caesar has war paint on in the international trailer, but no war paint in the US trailer? What does that mean? Is there going to be two different versions of the same movie? Because I’m down with that.

    I called it!

    I called it!

    • Justin Kemp

      No, I just think it’s a visual effects shot difference. Meaning that, it’s the exact same scene but I think Weta is just trying to get a feel for which one would feels/looks better. It happens all the time. I’m betting that they will go with the US trailer version rather than the UK one.

      • ??

        ceasar has two children by the end of of the movie, one who is a teenager in ape terms during the course of the movie, and his second child during the climax of the movie, just before the apes go to war… they are two different scenes, one for each of his childrens births

      • DEADP00L

        But if you download the trailers and watch the scenes side by side you’ll see they are the exact same renders. Ceasars first born is the blue eyed scarred ape in the trailer, he’s been born before this movie. His second baby is the one being born in the trailer and I suspect it’s before the war because it might be the baby ape the humans are holding.

  • ʝoe ßloggs

    This and Godzilla are gonna kick some serious simian nuts.

  • mbmarquis69

    This appears to be another smart-looking, character-driven Summer blockbuster. I hope this series never lets go of that because this looks amazing.
