In December we shared with you the teaser for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the rebooted film series. As the title and footage clearly showed, the decisive battle for the planet is set to occur. A new trailer was released today, and it seems the humans aren’t fighting fairly.
It’s pretty clear humanity is on its last legs. As Woody Harrelson’s new character tells Caesar after being offered peace, not fighting against the apes would inevitably end humankind. To that effect, the humans are doing everything they can to win, including missile strikes from helicopters and even recruiting traitors from amongst the apes. There’s new scenes of battle we haven’t seen before along with a glimpse of the climactic fight between the leaders of the two factions. Watch the new trailer now:
Director Matt Reeves returns to the franchise after also directing the second film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The latest entry in the franchise heads to theaters on July 14.
