The final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes is here. The third movie in the rebooted sci-fi action series promises an epic showdown between apes and man, and this trailer certainly doesn’t hold back on the spectacular action. Check it out below:
The film follows Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014). It’s directed by Matt Reeves, whose previous credits include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield, and who will next helm the standalone Batman movie for DC.
A previous trailer was released in March–you can watch that here. The film stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, and Judy Greer.
In a recent interview with Slashfilm, Serkis spoke about the movie’s “epic” scale. “It’s an amazing arc that Matt and [co-writer] Mark Bomback have written,” he said. “What they’ve managed to do each time, with Dawn and then with this one, is to amplify the stakes emotionally and scale-wise.
“It’s very epic. It’s on a massive scale not just because of its title… but because the stakes are just so much higher. And the global understanding… the apes find out there are other apes outside of the smaller group who are evolving and changing and discovering how much the virus is affecting humanity. It’s a fantastic journey.”
War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on July 14, 2017.
