Caesar is coming back, and he's pissed. Friday 20th Century Fox unleashed a trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the rebooted series, and potentially the darkest yet most exciting.
This, the first trailer for the film, features cuts of human soldiers and heavily armed apes, explosive simian vs. human battles, and Andy Serkis as ape leader Caesar growling that he didn't begin the war.
Most interesting of all we get to see Woody Harrelson's Colonel, the leader of the human forces, who clearly has it out for Caesar and the rest of the evolved apes. It promises to continue a series that unlike some reboots has been reliably entertaining and distinct enough from the classic '70s films to virtually be a new franchise.
In addition to Serkis and Harrelson, War for the Planet of the Apes stars Steve Zahn, Terry Notary and Karin Konoval. The movie is in theaters everywhere on July 14, 2017.
