The final trailer for director Matt Reeves‘ (Let Me In, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) War for the Planet of the Apes has hit the Internet and it’s packed with action and tense situations. The Planet of the Apes franchise holds a special place in this NerdBastards’ heart and it is wonderful to see it recover from the 2001 disaster that was Tim Burton‘s Planet of the Apes. This latest installment appears to have everything a Planet of the Apes movie should, apes, action, social commentary, horse riding apes with guns. Check it out below.
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.
Now that looks like a fun movie. Woody Harrelson looks to be at his manic/crazy/over-the-top self as the Colonel and we couldn’t ask for more in this summer blockbuster.
War for the Planet of the Apes hits theater screens July 14th.
