A digital billboard promoting Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes has made its way online, although anyone hoping it shows new footage is going to be sorely disappointed. Rather, it shows snowflakes forming the rough yet distinct shape of Caesar, with voice over lines from the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes warning of the impending war between apes and humans.
Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. 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.
Andy Serkis returns as Caesar, with Judy Greer as Caesar’s wife, with Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Amiah Miller, and Terry Notary joining the fight.
War for the Planet of the Apes marches into theaters July 14th, 2017.
