The third film in the reboot series continues from where we left off leading into a full scale war between the humans and the apes.

The trailer tells us that the apes are now on the run after the bitter events of the second film and those taking place just before this. Woody Harrelson plays the role of a human army leader leading from the front to exterminate every one of them damn dirty apes. The trailer is absolutely chilling and riveting as we see both sides gear up for the battle that will likely decide the fate of the planet and who will be the dominant species. The narration by Andy Serkis and Harrelson adds the emotional weight and gravitas demanded by the scope of the film.
