Following the first footage reveal at Comic-Con, Fox has released a first official image from Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes , featuring an angry-looking Caesar.

The new image shows the simian rabble-rouser sporting war paint and leading a swarm of his brothers through the San Francisco woods.

It’s quite a disturbing image, with Caesar (once quite a cuddly chap) looking extremely intimidating. Seems like the apes well and truly have the upper hand…

The new film will pick up some time after the events of its predecessor, with the ape-borne flu having decimated human society, and the fragile peace established between both races growing increasingly unstable.

Directed by Matt Reeves and co-starring Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman and Keri Russell, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes will open in the US on 18 July 2014 with a UK date to be confirmed.
