20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for its upcoming “War for the Planet of the Apes,” ahead of the film’s July 14 theatrical release. This third installment of the rebooted “Planet of the Apes” sci-fi series was directed by Matt Reeves, who also helmed the 2014 sequel, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”
Co-written by Reeves and Mark Bomback (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “The Wolverine”), in this third chapter of the blockbuster franchise the apes are forced to fight against an army of human soldiers led by the ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson) in order to save their planet. Andy Serkis reprises his role as Caesar, who leads the apes into battle. “I did not start this war, but I will finish it,” he says. The film also stars Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval and Judy Greer as apes.
Rupert Wyatt directed 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which marked the first installment in the rebooted series. Check out the final trailer and poster for “War for the Planet of the Apes” below.
