20th Century FOX is teasing the latest chapter in its Planet of the Apes franchise, titled War for the Planet of the Apes, with an ominous message.
In the teaser, fallout forms a silhouette in the likeness of ape leader Caesar, whose voice is heard saying “war has begun,” suggesting that the battle between man and ape has the potential to escalate to a nuclear armageddon.
War for the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves. It stars Andy Serkis as Caesar and Woody Harrelson as the apes’ human antagonist the Colonel.
War for the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters July 14, 2017.
