Ahead of its panel today at New York Comic Con, a new teaser for “War for the Planet of the Apes” has been released by 20th Century Fox.While no actual footage of the new film is included, the 30-second digital billboard shows Caesar (Andy Serkis) materializing out of snow and warns, “You must go before the fighting begins.” The snowy ape then gets blown away after he states that “war has begun.”

Director Matt Reeves, Serkis and producer Dylan Clark will be in attendance today at the panel where they will share new footage – and hopefully a new trailer.
