The damn dirty apes are back with a new installment to the Planet of the Apes reboot saga in Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. Caesar, the Ape savior has come and gone after the events of War for the Planet of the Apes. Several generations after his death, a new ape protagonist named Noa (Owen Teague) takes center stage and is surprisingly good at falconry. Apes have become the dominant species on Earth and colonized everywhere where humans used to be. Speaking of humans, thanks to the Simian Flu pandemic in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, have now become the beasts of the land. However, not all apes aren’t following Caesar’s age-old law, Ape Shall Not Kill Ape” when their motives for dominion are revealed in this teaser trailer.
Here is the official synopsis:
Director Wes Ball breathes new life into the global, epic franchise set several generations in the future following Caesar’s reign, in which apes are the dominant species living harmoniously and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows. As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.
