Gary Oldman appears to be rallying his human troops in the first trailer for “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which ends with a menacing Caesar rallying his own.
The sequel to 2011 hit “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” takes place a decade after James Franco‘s character created super monkey Caesar (Andy Serkis), as well as a virus that wiped out most of humanity.
Director Matt Reeves‘ considerably darker addition to the franchise follows a band of survivors — including Oldman, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell — who threaten primate rule. The two species 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.
So, anyone want to place a bet on mankind?
Didn’t think so.
