Things Look Bleak in the First War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

I’ve been anxiously awaiting the first War for the Planet of the Apes trailer, having completely fallen in love with the rebooted franchise.  Rise was an excellent origin, Dawn was intense and emotional, all of which has been leading up to an all out war between the humans and apes.  This teaser trailer gives us a glimpse of that war and it’s looking dire indeed: 

Even though it’s relatively early, and VFX work will continue on right up until the month of release, the graphics are already looking impressive.  This most definitely looks like a war movie, through and through, and I can’t wait to see more of the story come into focus.  In all, it’s an excellent first look.  What do you guys think? 

In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
