The final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes is here. Following the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and the apes are embroiled in a war against an army of humans. As the apes suffer heavy losses, Caesar (Andy Serkis) wrestles with his darker instincts as he resolves to avenge his kind. The war pits Caesar against the humans’ leader, a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson), in a battle that will determine the fate of their species and Earth’s future.
Matt Reeves returns to direct this anticipated sequel and I’m looking forward to seeing Harrelson’s performance as the Colonel. It will be interesting to see if cinema audiences will be cheering at the end for the apes or the humans. This franchise has been impressive overall and a very rare example of a decent reboot. This trailer seems to have it all with the mixture of emotion and action I’m looking forward to seeing this in July and going “ape” for it…….Sorry
The film also stars Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer, and Terry Notary. War for the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters on 14th July in the UK.
