Apes Mean Business in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Trailer

The official, full-length trailer for reboot sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is out and the apes aren’t monkeying around. Led by chimpanzee  Caesar, a colony of primates–who 10 years earlier escaped into the redwood forests of San Francisco in Rise of the Planet of the Apes— has advanced into a full-fledged society. While the apes evolve, human society spirals into devolution as a result of a laboratoryborn virus crippling the population. When the evolutionary scales balance, a confrontation ensues and the battle is far more dramatic than the one seen  in 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, which Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is loosely based on. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on June 11.
