First Trailer for ‘Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’ Teases a New Vision for the Franchise

The first trailer for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes has been released online. Directed by Wes Ball, and with a screenplay by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman, and Patrick Aison, the movie stars Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Kevin Durand, Travis Jeffrey, Peter Macon, and William H. Macy.

Here is the plot 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.”

Additionally, a poster for the movie was released, which you can look at below:
