Prepare for the 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

All hail Caesar! The talking ape of the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise is back in the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, with motion-capture master Andy Serkis reprising his role as the simian leader, and we have a first look at the first teaser trailer from the summer 2014 release Dawn of the Planet of the Apes!

PICS: Comic-Con Cuties

Humans are now the minority after a devastating virus was unleashed decades earlier, and their fragile peace with the genetically evolved apes led by Caesar proves short-lived as both sides must battle it out to determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. Who will win? Don't ask Charlton Heston...
