Director Matt 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 Kebbell.  Dawn 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.
