Today, 20th Century Fox released the first clip from Matt Reeves’s upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter in their blockbuster franchise that kicked off in 2011 with Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and continued with Reeves’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014. The latest entry centers around Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his band of apes being forced into conflict with an army of humans ruled by Woody Harrelson’s Colonel. According to the film’s official synopsis: “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.”
