Apes. Together. Strong.
After a sneak peek at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, 20th Century Fox has unleashed the new trailer and poster for this Summer’s primate-populated epic, War for the Planet of the Apes.
After the war started in 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the ape leader Caesar, played though motion-capture by Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, Avengers: Age of Ultron), finds a new human rival in Woody Harrelson (Wilson, Zombieland) as a ruthless colonel of the armed forces that seek to take out Casear’s clan of hyper-intellegent apes. This will result in a grand-scale battle for dominance over the planet and given how the world Charlton Heston encounters is in the original 1968 film, the odds don’t appear to be in our species’ favor.
Dawn director Matt Reeves returns to direct the conclusion of the prequel trilogy started in 2011 with Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Reeves is also set to direct the caped crusader himself in The Batman, starring Ben Affleck, for Warner Bros.
The war begins in theaters on July 14th.
