We finally have a first look at Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, out in 2024. Here’s the new trailer:
The recent Planet Of The Apes trilogy that 20th Century Studios brought us between 2011 and 2017 (back when it was good old 20th Century Fox) was one of those rare beasts: a series of remakes that somehow felt fresh and also, didn’t drop the ball throughout the entirety of the three film arc. That means that years later, there’s still plenty of goodwill out there for the franchise, not to mention an appetite for more stories set in the same world.
The next film in the series, Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes, is set to release in May of next year and will pick up the threads from the previous three films, taking place years after 2017’s climactic War For The Planet Of The Apes. Wes Ball, director of The Maze Runner, takes the reins for this instalment, in which ‘numerous ape societies that have grown from when Caesar (the apes’ legendary leader) brought his people to an oasis. At the same time humans have been reduced to a feral-like existence.’

According to the synopsis, ‘In this setting, one ape leader begins to enslave other groups in an effort to find leftover human technology. At the same time another ape, who watched his clan be taken, embarks on a journey to find freedom with a young human woman becoming key to his quest. She has plans of her own though.’
The film shot last year in Australia and features William H Macy, Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Peter Macon, Eka Darville, Dichen Lachman and Kevin Durand in the ensemble cast. Here’s that first trailer below.
