New ‘War For the Planet of the Apes’ Trailer Goes Dark

A second trailer for the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes has been released online. In the third chapter of the rebooted franchise, we will experience a full-scale war between the apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis) and the humans led by Woody Harrelson.

First off let’s just give a big round of applause to the brilliant VFX artistry here. With every Apes movie, the effects have consistently improved. Now coming back, if you thought the film was all fun and games you’re so wrong. The trailer is one of the heaviest and darkest in recent times as both the apes and humans are now out for blood. Caeser, at one point of time, did give a damn about the human race but seems to do less so now. He is out to protect his kind at any cost.

Director Matt Reeves did an excellent job on Dawn and is certainly set to outdo himself now. The added intensity, darkness and tension makes a great case as to why he was selected to direct The Batman.

Reeves co-writes the script with Mark Bomback. The film also stars Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, and Terry Notary.

War For The Planet Of The Apes arrives in theatres on July 14, 2017.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the film:

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.
