Apes on horses are back!

20th Century Fox has revealed the first trailer for next year’s highly anticipated third entry in the ‘Planet of the Apes’ reboot series, ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’.

I love both ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’, and with my anticipation set to high, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to get with the upcoming third entry, but after seeing the trailer, my excitement has grown even more as this was one of the best movie trailers of this year.

Set after the events of the second film, it seems to show that there’s a huge separation between the humans and the apes. So much so, judging by Caesar’s dialogue in the trailer, the humans are trying to wipe out the apes as Caesar states “But now you are here, to finish us off. For good”, which leads against the war between the humans and the apes, but that’s just me speculating based off the initial trailer. Although, there seems to be high stakes on both sides as Woody Harrelson’s character states in the trailer “And if we lose. It will be, a planet of apes”. However, it seems to continue the darker tone that was established with ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ debuts in theatres on July 14th, 2017.
