20th Century Fox has released the new trailer for director Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes! This movie is looking incredibly complex based on what we see in the trailer. Caesar and his fellow apes are doing all they can to protect themselves against Woody Harrelson’s “Colonel” and his army of humans. Far from being black and white, it would appear that Caesar has taken in a human girl and a gorilla has joined up with the human militia, blurring the lines of ape versus man. I love the dark tone and direction that Reeves is going in. War is looking to be another amazing chapter in the new Planet of the Ape franchise.
Here’s a brief 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.
Let us know what you think of it. The film comes out on July 14th.
