20th Century Fox has released the first clip for their upcoming sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, and Keri Russell. The new film sees the world ten years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as Caesar (Serkis) leads the surviving apes in the aftermath of the deadly virus that spread across the world, eradicating much of the human race.
The new clip is tense and serious, as a group of humans, led by Jason Clarke, stumble into the territory that belongs to the apes. Caesar is non too happy with the human arrivals, and begins to assert his dominance on them. Check it out below.
The clip comes courtesy of MTV:
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves, and which also stars Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Judy Greer will be released in 2D and 3D on July 11, 2014.
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.
