20th Century Fox has released the final Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer less than a week after the previous trailer.  No matter—everything Fox has shown us from Dawn looks great.  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.  I enjoyed Rise of the Planet of the Apes and I am thrilled to see the sequel take a giant step forward and dive deep into a new world. The only question mark for me is how Gary Oldman’s militant villain will play out.  But I trust director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) hired Oldman for a reason and hope the role is more nuanced outside brief clips.

Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Judy Greer also star in the July 11 release.

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.
