New Trailer, Posters, and Images For Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes
20th Century has dropped a new trailer, posters, and images for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, which tells us much more about the mysterious plot.
- New trailer reveals more about Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes' plot and direction.
- Disney releases full trailer, adding to Super Bowl ad excitement.
- Film faces stiff competition in May, success hinges on audience turnout.
- Wes Ball directs, with a star-studded cast including Owen Teague and Freya Allan.
It's not just big game spots and teasers during the Super Bowl; Disney decided they wanted to drop an entire trailer on us. The plot of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes has been a bit vague, but this official trailer tells us a lot more about what this movie will be about. It's going in an interesting direction, but people are still very nervous about this one, and with good reason. The last three films were so good, and it's so rare that good movies come out of reviving a classic franchise. People are worried that this could only be a cynical cash grab, but they seem to be exploring some interesting ideas here. This film has some serious competition in May, though, so whether or not it'll be able to find an audience with so many other massive movies coming out might be the bigger hurdle it needs to clear. Even if it's good, if no one goes to see it, it won't matter if they are using this as a springboard for a new trilogy.
