Watch the First Trailer for <i>Dawn of the Planet of the Apes</i>

In the first trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to the franchise reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we get a brief look at the remaining humans struggling to survive and make peace with their soon-to-be ape overlords.

The story takes place four years after Will Rodman (James Franco) created a compound designed to eliminate Alzheimer’s, but instead, gives rise to a super-intelligent species of apes. Unfortunately, the compound is fatal to humans and nearly wipes out the entire human race.

Although Franco won’t be returning for the sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Judy Greer (Arrested Development), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings) and more.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters July 11, 2014.
