Matt Reeves has posted the first picture from the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It’s an awesome teaser. It features Andy Serkis, complete with mo-cap suit, on horseback looking down at Jason Clarke, the lead actor. In the background you can see Keri Russell and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The film will star Andy Serkis (once again as Ceasar), Keri Russell, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell, Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Matt Reeves, the director of Cloverfield and Let Me In, is at the helm.

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

ETA: USA – 23 May, 2014.
