War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

"I refuse to accept the end of man." 20th Century Fox has revealed one final trailer for the new War for the Planet of the Apes movie, directed again by Matt Reeves, continuing (and likely ending) this latest trilogy of Apes movies. The last trailer for this is one of my favorite trailers this year so far, and this movie is most #1 most anticipated of the year (followed by Blade Runner 2049, The Last Jedi, and Dunkirk). Andy Serkis returns to play Caesar, and the cast includes Woody Harrelson as his adversary, the Colonel. Also starring Judy Greer as Cornelia, Max Lloyd-Jones as Blue Eyes, plus Steve Zahn, Chad Rook, Ty Olsson, Aleks Paunovic and Sara Canning. I'm completely sold on this movie already, so I don't need to see any more. But this is an superb trailer that plays up the epic feeling of this man vs ape war. Must watch.

Here's the third & final trailer for Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes, from Fox's YouTube:

You can still see the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes here, or the second official trailer here.

In 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 is again directed by Matt Reeves, of the previous Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as Let Me In and Cloverfield. The script is written by Mark Bomback and Matt Reeves; based on Pierre Boulle's novel. Fox will begin the War for the Planet of the Apes starting on July 14th this summer. Who's excited?

while I admire the technical prowess of this movies, I have to give it grief: Caesar reminds me of Snyder's Superman. He never smiles. Too much gun fights. PotA was an allegory, not a war film.

God the original Planet is so good. So good.

Yes sir! A classic. And Jerry Goldsmith's score was the icing on the cake.

tarek on May 16, 2017


The score elevates that movie to another level.

So true...So true.

No love for Burton's version?!? 😉

Awwww. I hated it. It looked so fake.

tarek on May 16, 2017


Lol! I found myself fascinated with the Rick Baker's make-up and Tim Roth's character. Scared the CRAP out of me! And it was a star studded cast! Charlton Heston, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Clarke Duncan, Paul Giamatti, Kris Kristofferson! But you're right, overall it was terrible.

Charlton Heston? Man! I need to know who's your dealer. ;D You meant Marky Mark of course.

tarek on May 16, 2017


Nope, check the credits. Charlton Heston is indeed in it 😉

THE_RAW_ on May 16, 2017


So he played an Ape? I didn't know. I will stay with my dealer then. ;D

tarek on May 16, 2017


Yeah, it was a small SMALL cameo, but he was in there nonetheless!

THE_RAW_ on May 16, 2017


WHY. SO. SERIOUS.....Caesar?

THE_RAW_ on May 16, 2017


;D. He needs to join the Joker team.

I am with you on this one Alex. This trailer has me hook line and sinker. Planet of the Apes is easily my favorite franchise and they put out fantastic, gripping adventure that is eerily reflective upon today's human condition. I think that is in the true spirit of what the great Rod Serling put forth in his original movie. I do agree with @tarektoverso:disqus in that movies today tend to be too heavy handed when it comes to Michael Bay/Fast and the Furious fight sequences and explosions. Those have to be included to appeal to a wide enough audience. However, the Planet of the Apes reboot has lived up to its' predecessors standards in terms of epic storytelling as well as an exceptional score.

I was disappointed with second installment of this. I will probably see this for Woody's part. Or just to be surprised by something good and brave ...

Feel bad for that horse upon which a gorilla rides.

Should have gone with "Make America Ape Again".

Another Planet of boring creatures movie.

This franchise has turned out to be much more than I originally anticipated, but I have no desire to see it in the theater. The first two were just as enjoyable @ home for me. Hoping it's a fitting bookend to a pretty solid beginning.
