War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots

If Matt ReevesWar for the Planet of the Apes is as good as its trailers make it out to be – and we have no reason to think it won’t live up to that high bar – that should put these movies in the conversation of the best cinematic trilogies ever made. The two films before this one, especially Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, are tremendous pieces of pop storytelling, and though the new one looks to take a darker turn, it’s exactly where this story has been heading from the start.

20th Century Fox has unveiled two new War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots as a nice chaser for the new trailer that dropped earlier this week. Check them out below.

The final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes will bring about “the end” — but for whom?

Talk of war and abandoning humanity to save humanity is every bit as thrilling as some ape vs. man action in the latest War for the Planet of the Apes trailer.
