It's Human vs. Ape in New 'War For The Planet Of The Apes' Trailer

"All of human history has led to this moment."

The war has begun — and even though Caesar didn't want it in the first place, that doesn't mean that he's not going to do whatever it takes to win.

The first trailer for Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes has been released, showing not only the "last stand" of humanity, as Woody Harrelson's character "The Colonel" calls it, but also the future of human/ape relations in the adoption of a human orphan by the ape forces.

Following from 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the 2014 sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, War sees Andy Serkis return as the reluctant leader of the apes, alongside Judy Greer, Steve Zahn and Karin Konoval. In terms of humans, Harrelson stands alongside Gabriel Chavarria and Chad Rook.

War for the Planet of the Apes opens July 14, 2017.
