Final Trailer for ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Previews the End of a Trilogy

Written by on May 16, 2017 


Although this summer will bring the ninth film in the Planet of the Apes franchise, 20th Century Fox is officially billing it at as “the culminating chapter of the latest trilogy.” The final trailer has now been released for Matt Reeves‘ War for the Planet of the Apes, which features the return of Andy Serkis as his Caesar goes up against Woody Harrelson‘s character. The preview hints at an epic conclusion to these new set of films, even though we imagine more will follow in the years to come.

“We watched Bridge on the River Kwai. We watched The Great Escape. We watched Biblical epics, because I really felt like this movie had to have a Biblical aspect to it. We watched Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments. We didn’t go, like, ‘Let’s take a little bit of this, a little bit of that.’ When you surround yourself with something that feels emotionally right, there are connections that make sense to you that somebody else might not see…[the films] informed the vibe we felt about this thing,” Reeves tells EW.

Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, and Terry Notary.

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 opens on July 14, 2017.
