‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Teaser Gives Fans First Look at Older, Wiser Caesar (Video)

“War for the Planet of the Apes” dropped its first teaser on Thursday, with Andy Serkis‘ Caesar delivering a chilling narration foreshadowing the battle to come.

“You must go,” he says. “Before the fighting begins. I’m sorry. War has begun.” Doesn’t exactly paint a rosy picture, does it?

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own quest to avenge his kind.
