Don’t try to contain your excitement folks. The first trailer for the newest entry of the Apes series, War for Planet of the Apes, has just debuted! Check it out below for some Woody Harrelson-heavy drama in the post apocalyptic tale of humans vs apes engaged in a war for survival:
The new Planet of the Apes trilogy could go down as one of those rare, near perfect film trilogies because the past two entries have been nothing but stellar. This trailer gives high hopes that the franchise won’t fall into the dreaded 3rd movie stumble that happens with so many others; Matrix Revolutions, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Apocalypse… Need I go on? After all, how can this third movie not be on par, or even better than its predecessors when the War for the Planet of the Apes is what we’ve all been clamoring for? It’s all been building to this since the first skirmish on the Golden Gate bridge in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and the moment Koba weaponized his brethren for war on the humans in the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Hopefully they don’t stop the franchise here, but a time jump in a fourth film would be the way to go and have things end in the future where Apes hold dominion over the Earth. Perhaps some people would like to see a co-existence between the two species in the end. Sound off in the comments!
War of the Planet of the Apes is slated for release on July 14, 2017.
