I just watched the first full trailer for Dawn of The Planet of The Apes and I’ve got to say… wow. I enjoyed the first film, even with it’s copious amounts of James Franco, but this movie looks like they’ve taken the franchise to a whole new level.

As a fan of the original Apes series, I was skeptical when they announced the reboot. I was pleased after the first film, but now this trailer has me jumping up and down like a howler monkey.

Official synopsis:
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.

Andy Serkis is reprising his role as Caesar, and he’ll be joined by 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.
