Just when you think you can’t get any more pumped up over the latest installment of the Planet of the Apes reboot, something comes along to amp it up even higher. I’m talking about the latest Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer that serves as the last official trailer before the film’s release next month.

While earlier trailers have teased about the potential conflict between humans and apes, the latest Dawn of  the Planet of the Apes trailer makes it quite clear that war has come. My brother and I are looking forward to this movie (Planet of the Apes is perhaps his favorite film franchise), and the plot of humanity being ravaged by a virus struggling to survive in a world increasingly dominated by apes is potent. The sad thing is that if apes could think as well as humans, we would be at a tremendous disadvantage due to their increased strength and increased hardiness to survive outdoors.

We have Andy Serkis reprising his role of Caesar, but the real kicker for me is Gary Oldman. That man is golden in every role he chooses to play, whether he’s the hero of the villain. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes releases on July 11th.
