New ‘War Of the Planet of The Apes’ Trailer Somehow Even Better Than the First

We have been getting a ton of great teasers and trailers and promos this week, and this new trailer for War Of the Planet of The Apes might be the best one yet.

Check this 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.

This looks on par with the previous entry. Dark, foreboding, the tone of finality. The success of this new Apes franchise is when big studio filmmaking gets everything right. It’s also great to be in the middle of a Woody Harrelson renaissance. He needs to be in as much as possible.

Aside from Serkis and Harrelson, War Of the Planet of The Apes stars Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, and Sara Canning. It’s directed by Matt Reeves, who will go from this to The Batman, and it opens July 14.
