It’s Woody Harrelson Vs. Monkey in the Insane New ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Trailer

This looks bananas.

The new War for the Planet of the Apes has a lot to offer: A Darwinian battle for species supremacy, a venerable cast of character actors, but mostly a maniacal Woody Harrelson covered in black face paint and fighting off apes.

A new trailer for the upcoming third installment of the Planet of the Apes reboot series just hit the web, and it promises to be the darkest and most brutal entry yet. (And there’s Woody!)

The titular “war” of the film is between Caesar’s legions of chimp followers and¬†Harrelson’s iron-fisted colonel. 20th Century Fox offered the following synopsis:

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.

See the culmination of their epic battle royal when War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on July 14.
