Slated to hit theaters on July 11, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes’” sequel stars Keri Russell, Jason Clarke and Gary Oldman.

Per the synopsis, "A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar [Gary Oldman] 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."
