This the final official trailer for Fox’s War for the Planet of the Apes, the third installment in the fantastic rebooted Apes franchise that started back in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Caesar has had enough of this war since it’s been going on for three movies now, but if this really is to be the final battle for Earth, what will the future of the series hold next? Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes have a combined worldwide box office total of almost $1.2 billion, which is nothing to sneeze at. If this new one is just as popular as the previous two, Fox will obviously want to continue the series, possibly without Caesar (since I have a feeling he might die in War). As far as the trailer goes I found it pretty good, minus some of the music. At the same time they would have to work really hard to make this film look bad, so it’s not surprising that we have yet another good trailer for it.
Matt Reeves, who also also helmed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and is next set for The Batman, directed War for the Planet of the Apes as well as co-wrote the screenplay with Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Starring in the film are Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn and of course Andy Serkis is once again Caesar.
War for the Planet of the Apes opens July 14th in the US and almost everywhere else, so only about 8 weeks to go.
