NEW TRAILER WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
THE FIGHT FOR THE PLANET BEGINS...
Twentieth Century Fox
is pleased to reveal the final trailer for WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
, in cinemas July 14.
Everyone’s angry at everyone else in the last War for the Planet of the Apes
trailer, which makes sense, as the excellent prequel trilogy has always been building up to one final battle for the fate of human and simian kind. By the looks of it, it’s going to be one hell of a fight.
This last trailer is packed with new footage of glorious ape-vs.-human action, but actually still doesn’t tell us much about the wider story of War for the Planet of the Apes
. We get a few hints at the strange young girl Caesar and his retinue pick up on their journey—who is meant to be Nova from the classic first Apes movie
—and we get a little more insight into the desperation of the surviving remnant of humanity. But it’s mainly about both sides being backed up against a wall, and each deciding a bloody, costly war as the only way they can survive.
It’s also kind of about monkeys with hand grenades, too. Seriously, there’s a lot of crazy-looking action going on here.
Starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson and Steve Zahn and directed by Matt Reeves.
In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES is released in UK cinemas July 14 2017.
