Watch: War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

Hail, Caesar!

The modern Planet of the Apes films are an exercise in how to properly reboot a franchise. The next installment in the series, War for the Planet of the Apes, appears poised to up the ante on the primate-dominated dystopian future.

The fate of the human race is left to Woody Harrelson’s army, which is locked in combat with Caesar’s ape colony. The film is set for a July 14, 2017 release.
