Apes And Humans Are At It Again In The First Trailer For ‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’

Earlier this morning, 20th Century Fox dropped the first look at the third chapter of this prequel Planet Of The Apes franchise. Check out the trailer by click the play button in the header above!


This is a surprise franchise that keeps getting stronger and stronger. Director Matt Reeves (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) returns to helm this third instalment which sees Caesar coming to terms with the knowledge that there can only be one dominant species on the planet. I love that these films seem to toss out the human cast with each instalment – and I’m excited to see what Woody Harrelson can bring to the mix as “The Colonel”

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 hits Aussie theatres on July 13th, 2017.
