New teaser trailer for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes swings in: watch now

A new teaser trailer for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (opens in new tab) has swung online, and those damn, dirty apes take a back seat to the humans this time around.

Set 15 years after 2011's surprisingly-brilliant reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (opens in new tab) , the sequel catches up with ape Caesar (Andy Serkis), who leads a rabble of intelligent monkeys in a war against the humans.

The humans in question are played by Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Kodi Smit-McPhee, all of whom struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic future.

Check out the trailer below...

With Gary Oldman bellowing over some seriously gripping action footage, the only bit of monkey action on offer is a single shot of Caesar looking really badass.

We just got chills. This is going to be good...

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes opens in the UK on 17 July 2014.
