The trailer for the third installment of the critically-acclaimed rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise is here and it’s good. The two previous films have led to what promises to be a dramatic final showdown between the apes and humans.
“I offered you peace. I showed you mercy. But now you’re here to finish us off for good,” Caesar sternly states in the clip. Meanwhile, the Colonel played by Woody Harrelson declares, “The irony is we created you, and nature has been punishing us ever since.” He adds, “This is our last stand. And if we lose, it will be a planet of apes.”
In War for the Planet of the Apes, Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson). 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.
Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Amiah Miller and Terry Notary round out the cast in the Matt Reeves-directed film. It hits theaters July 14, 2017. Check out the trailer below.
