20th Century Studios shared a brand-new trailer for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes last night during the Super Bowl, and this latest look at the movie should assuage any concerns about Disney's decision to continue the franchise.

We had assumed Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes would be the final installment in the saga, but we found out back in 2019 that a brand-new Apes movie was in the works with with Wes Ball (The Maze Runner) at the helm.

Kingdom takes place over 300 hundred years after the events of the last film. In this timeline, apes are living in (relative) harmony as the dominant species on the planet, with humans eking out a near feral existence. As the tyrannical Proximus Caesar attempts to solidify his rule by harnessing ancient human technology, the heroic Noa joins forces with a young woman and vows to keep her safe in a society that no longer values human life.

Check out the new trailer below, along with some new character posters.

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 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. (The Maze Runner), Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Jason Reed (Mulan), with Peter Chernin (the Planet of the Apes trilogy) and Jenno Topping (Ford v. Ferrari) serving as executive producers.

Always be a fan of prosthesis/practical FX over computer imagery - BUT - I'm really looking forward to this.

Love to see 'the world building' going on - and (intentional or not) the ideas/imagery from previous POTA outing in comics.

This movie looks great. Itll be tough to top the last trilogy but this looks like it could be special and the start of another awesome trilogy.
AnthonyVonGeek - 2/12/2024, 12:57 PM
Can’t wait. Bout time this site promoted this here instead of their boring sci fi sister site that no one visits. 🤷‍♂️🤣
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/12/2024, 12:57 PM
I haven't been this excited for summer blockbusters in years.
Shivermetimbers - 2/13/2024, 9:27 AM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - For real!!!! Dune 2 (not summer, but still...), Planet of the Apes, Deadpool all have me hyped!. What else?
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/13/2024, 12:39 PM
@Shivermetimbers - I don't know about you, but for me Furiosa too!
Shivermetimbers - 2/13/2024, 3:17 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - Yeah! Almost forgot that was coming!
ModHaterSLADE - 2/12/2024, 1:00 PM
The Reeves trilogy was excellent. Hope this is remotely as good.
HashTagSwagg - 2/12/2024, 1:22 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - Could have sworn someone else made the first one.
HammerLegFoot - 2/12/2024, 1:27 PM
@HashTagSwagg - Rupert Wyatt
ModHaterSLADE - 2/12/2024, 1:31 PM
@HashTagSwagg - Ok, I was mistaken. TWO excellent movies from Reeves. One excellent one from Rupert Wyatt.
Radders - 2/14/2024, 8:40 AM
@ModHaterSLADE - I thought the third one was a bit f a bore but glad you liked them
PapaSpank54 - 2/12/2024, 1:00 PM
Gonna go in blind to this one. I love the Apes movies so much, even with that aside, Dawn/War are so far above most blockbusters of the '10s in terms of filmmaking and craft. Simply incredible films. Rise was good too, and I'd be happy if this new one was as good as that.

@WhatIfRickJames - TIME OF THE APES for the win!

I lost all interest in these Ape movies.

McMurdo - 2/12/2024, 1:32 PM
@AllsGood - well ya they aren't Marvel films.
AllsGood - 2/12/2024, 2:11 PM
@McMurdo - The Rise of the Planet of the Apes was great, but I lost interest after that.

EZBeast - 2/12/2024, 3:02 PM
@AllsGood - Dawn of the planet of the apes is one of the best scifi films ever made! You chose a bad time to lose interest.
MrDandy - 2/12/2024, 1:32 PM
I was apprehensive about Reeves leaving, but this looks pretty damn good.
marvel72 - 2/12/2024, 1:38 PM
This looks really good, I would say a better trailer than Deadpool and Wolverine,I just can't trust Disney 100%.
ShellHead - 2/12/2024, 2:41 PM
@marvel72 - Disney produced this movie too guy
Matchesz - 2/12/2024, 2:11 PM
Something about the look of that actress has this old timey classic movie type of feel I cant put my finger on it
Nolanite - 2/12/2024, 2:20 PM
I was actually more impressed with this trailer than I was for the new Emm She Ewe film thats coming out later this year.
Opening night for me.
Nolanite out

ladys filthy but has clean teeth

DocSpock - 2/12/2024, 3:07 PM
@grif -

Sounds like every chick in a country bar.

Except the teeth part.
MarkCassidy - 2/12/2024, 3:59 PM
@grif - just the way I like em.
FusionWarrior - 2/12/2024, 2:26 PM
So basically a new take on 1968 by the looks of it.
bkmeijer1 - 2/12/2024, 2:33 PM
@FusionWarrior - wouldn't be surprised if this entire trilogy is gonna retell the events of the first two movies. Thinking this one will mostly establish this world though.
grif - 2/12/2024, 6:28 PM
@bkmeijer1 - the more primitive it gets the more parallels there will be.
Shinzo - 2/12/2024, 2:48 PM
New Wicked prequel looks fire 🔥
AmazingFILMporg - 2/12/2024, 2:52 PM
This film looks incredible 💪
FlopWatchers5 - 2/12/2024, 2:59 PM
how many times are they gonna tell this story?

the cgi looks better than it ever has. overall tone matches the aesthetics of the mythology.
Nomis929 - 2/12/2024, 3:10 PM
Looks awesome! Day one for me!
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 3:31 PM
Matt Reeves is just a generic director.
I have no idea how he got the gig for "The Batman."
That film was "so-bland-and-already-been-there-done-that."

I loved 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' with Franco. Such a perfect film.
Then Reeves took over on all the sequels and I couldn't wait to get out of the theater. I just don't get it.

Get Del-Torro, Burton, Raimi, Nolan again (and give him a crap-ton of money), Bruce Timm, and so on who knows how 'The Batman' should be. Also Drew Goddard, Eli Roth and Ronny Yu. (James Wann might work too).

Batman needs a director that will explore and embellish the darkness of this dude.
