Intelligent apes are one thing, but intelligent apes with guns are quite another. Even humans as wise as Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke may not be enough to stop them, but the world will have to wait until Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is released to find out more. In the meantime, here are ten new images from the film.
"We've got apes on horses," says director Matt Reeves. "There is a sense in the beginning of the movie that apes have inherited the Earth. You see the species as it takes dominion over the planet. It's an ape-world. That's the fun of it."
The sequel takes place a decade after the events in Rise, when humanity has been ravaged by a devastating virus unleashed upon the population. With the simian soldiers slowly establishing their own society, humanity tries to forge a fragile peace, but things don’t go to plan.
Serkis is joined by Toby Kebbell as Caesar's fellow ape, Koba, as well as a human cast that boasts Keri Russell and Judy Greer. With Kodi Smit-McPhee also in the cast, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is out on July 17.
