The latest instalment in the relaunched Planet of the Apes franchise, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, arrives in theatres exactly ten days from now, and 20th Century Studios has released quite a bit of new promotional material, including an action-packed final trailer spotlighting plenty of new footage.

The teaser tells us a little more about new lead ape, Noa, and reveals why he has a vendetta against the tyrannical Proximo Caesar. We also hear Mae speak, and it seems the human girl is fully aware that the world once belonged to her people before the ape uprising.

Does this mean KOTPOTA will bring events full circle? It's possible, but we might see at least one more movie before things begin to link up to the original Planet of the Apes.

Check out the new trailer, along with a poster and two featurettes, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

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.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Wes Ball (the Maze Runner trilogy) and stars Owen Teague (IT), Freya Allan (The Witcher), Kevin Durand (Locke & Key), Peter Macon (Shameless), and William H. Macy (Fargo).

The screenplay is by Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) and Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Avatar: The Way of Water) and Patrick Aison (Prey), based on characters created by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver. The producers are Wes Ball, Joe Hartwick, Jr., p.g.a. (The Maze Runner), Rick Jaffa, p.g.a., Amanda Silver, p.g.a., Jason Reed, p.g.a. (Mulan), with Peter Chernin (the Planet of the Apes trilogy) and Jenno Topping (Ford v. Ferrari) serving as executive producers.

Feel like there are so many interesting directions they could take a fully-fledged ape society in terms of themes, but this movie just looks so… basic? compared to the last three. Hopefully I’m wrong, but feel like they could have gotten a more interesting director than the maze runner guy. We’ll see.

Looks great, will it top Dune 2 at the box office? Maybe.

Looks great but something about all that CGI makes me yearn for Roddy McDowall in practical makeup...

The apes would definitely run California better than the idiots running it now.

Looks excellent! I like the world building. I wonder what do the apes think about monkeys?

They are going to release the film on DVD where you can watch it without the VFX. That will be novel!

The real secret Mae's hiding must be worth it if they are okay in spoiling what really happens to Noa that he rises against Proximus Ceasar's kingdom.

I love this franchise so I'm hoping it is another solid installment. Regardless of the upcoming critics scores I will see it in the big screen.

Noa’s dad is played by Neil Sandilands , Clifford DeVoe himself.

I didn’t realize that this came out so soon , I thought we still had like a month or so…

I feel like this movie has been under marketed so hopefully it gets a big push these next 9 days.

Anyway , I enjoyed the trailer and am looking forward to the film!!.

Apes or humans...why is there...evil in the world?
The concept will never not be fascinating.

P.S. Damn it's out in 10 days? Let's go!

I liked the reboots that came out awhile back and this looks ok, but not great imo.
I think Disney is about to run yet another property into the ground.
There doesn't seem to be much buzz about this movie and I think it's gonna flop.

This franchise started out great. Has been downhill ever since. The subtle, social commentary from the originals has given way to in-your-face woke politics. It has gone the way of Star Trek, from science fiction to action thriller.
