The final trailer for the 3rd installment of the Planet of the Apes reboot is here, ahead of the Worldwide release on 14 July.

The special effects that bring the ape characters to life seem to have gone up another level with the emotion shining through in the faces of the apes. Couple this with the “bigger” special effects of a full-blown war between apes and humans and this production looks epic.

I’m looking forward to seeing where this takes us. Will it bring the story up to the point at which the original Planet of the Apes started, or is there another tale to be told in between? You never know, it might even take us on a slightly different trajectory? Can’t wait to find out.

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.
