20th Century Studios has officially dropped the teaser trailer for their upcoming 2024 movie Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, along with revealing the flick’s first official poster.
Starring in the movie includes Owen Teague (It), Freya Allan (The Witcher), Kevin Durand (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Peter Macon (Shameless), and William H. Macy (Fargo).
Following Caesar’s reign as seen in the Andy Serkis-led Planet of the Apes trilogy, Kingdom is set several generations after in which apes are now the dominant species similar to the originals.
Humans now live in the shadows, hiding from the apes who hunt them down and imprison them all while a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is set to follow a young ape theorised to be Caesar’s son Cornelius, who undertakes a harrowing and life-changing journey that causes him to question everything that he knows about the past and to work toward building a future for both apes and humans.
Directed by Wes Ball and written by Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Avatar: The Way of Water), and Patrick Aison (Prey), based on characters created by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
Producing the flick includes Ball, Joe Hartwick Jr. (The Maze Runner), Jaffa, Silver, and Jason Reed (Mulan), with Peter Chernin (Planet of the Apes) and Jenno Topping (Ford v. Ferrari) as exec producers.
