war for the planet of the apes trailer

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

We find Caesar (Andy Serkis) broken, physically and emotionally, by the toll of war, as the fate of apes and humanity hangs in the balance. But as the war escalates to its final act, led on the human side by Woody Harrelson and what looks like a primate who has betrayed his kind, Caesar finds hope in a silent, lost child who he takes under his wing.

Planet of the Apes Prequels

Last night 20th Century Fox debuted the first teaser trailer and footage from War for the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the prequel franchise leading up to the events of the classic 1968 film starring Charlton Heston.

The first intelligent ape has been an emotional anchor for the whole series since it began with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but eventually he’ll have to die, whether at the hands of a human, or just because of old age.
