International Trailer for WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES Offers Intense New Footage
An international trailer has been released for War for the Planet of the Apes, and it offers us some new footage of Caesar engaging with Woody Harrelson’s The Colonel, who is the main villain in the story. The new footage is basically extensions of scenes that we saw in the first trailer. He is the one who declares war on the apes. Of course, we all know he’s going to lose. This latest film in the franchise will show us how it all goes down.
I’m impressed by what I’ve seen from this film so far. It’s very rare for a third film in a franchise to be just as good or better than the previous films, but this looks like it will be one of those rare sequels that pulls it off.
In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
War for the Planet of the Apes was directed by Matt Reeves and also stars Andy Serkis, Steve Zahn, Terry Notary, and Karin Konoval. It opens in theaters on July 14, 2017.
