The marketing campaign for the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel looks to be getting off to an incredibly early start.  The first teaser image/poster for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes popped up online earlier today over at the Facebook page for director Rupert Wyatt’s 2011 reboot.  Wyatt was originally set to helm Dawn but subsequently dropped out of the project due to concerns over meeting the film’s 2014 release date, but luckily the very talented Matt Reeves (Let Me In) quickly stepped in and is now set to helm the follow-up.  Hit the jump to take a look at the image.

[Update: It appears that someone was having a little fun with the official Facebook page, as the image released was not a promo image from the film but is in fact an existing piece of photography art.  The image has been removed from the Facebook page.]

Little is known about the sequel other than the fact that it will follow the continued rise of said Apes, but this image hints at a rather violent storyline.  Based on the events of the tail end of Rise, I assume we’ll see the Apes starting to hold some place of power over the humans this time around.  Andy Serkis is returning to reprise his role as Caesar, and The Wolverine scribe Mark Bomback was recently tapped to rewrite the script.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens on May 23, 2014.
