New ‘War for the Planet of The Apes’ Trailer is All About Nova

War for The Planet of The Apes is a little over a month away now, and there isn’t a more thrilling sequel/reboot/remake franchise on the summer slate. Let’s just try and make it through the garbage we have in June, because this one looks just as incredible as the last entry.

We have a new trailer, which is really an extended clip montage of sorts, and it’s all about Nova, Caesar and the apes’ human girl they reluctantly take in. Check it out:

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). 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 of their species and the future of the planet.


Of all the awesome trailer and all the anticipation around War for The Planet of The Apes, I think personally Woody Harrelson’s Colonel is what I am most looking forward to. He really looks like he is going to be overacting in the best possible way, hamming it up as the villain. And I am here for it.

War for The Planet of The Apes opens July 14th.
