A new international trailer for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" stomped out on Friday, and it's looking like the sequel to 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" is going to be pretty good.

The clip gives us our first look at the apes' new home in the forest, and the sheer number of apes in the trailer indicates just how much the simian population has grown since the last flick.

There's even a written reference to ape law, with "Ape shall not kill Ape" scrawled onto a rock in the ape home territory. The apes, led by Caesar, are on the brink of war with a band of human survivors of the virus that struck humanity a decade prior.

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is being released internationally starting this July in theaters across the US, UK, Australia, and several other countries.
