It goes without saying that studios who attend major Comic-Cons will be there with some footage of their upcoming tentpole films. While the San Diego Comic-Con is in a league of its own, the New York Comic-Con isn’t one to be overlooked. In the past few years, it has been making a name for itself, and with Lionsgate announcing that they will be presenting footage from John Wick: Chapter 2 and Power Rangers, it looks like audiences are in for some more geek goodness.

20th Century Fox is the latest studio to announce that they will be having a panel for their upcoming films as well. Now, they have unveiled the first look at War for the Planet of the Apes by releasing a teaser trailer at NYCC today. Check out the teaser here below.

Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 112 minutes
Release Date: April 3rd, 2016

If I told you I was seeing Planet of the Apes in theaters in 2016, you’d assume I was watching the third film in the new series starring Andy Serkis in motion capture technology as Caesar. Thanks to TCM and their Big Screen Classics promotion, the original 1968 classic is back in theaters for only one more day. It premiered on Sunday, July 24th, at several theaters throughout New York City, and I was there with my entire family, including my 5-year daughter.

Woody Harrelson

War of the Planet of the Apes recently added East Los High actor Gabriel Chavarria to the cast. The previous two films had some sort of human antagonist, with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes having one human villain and one ape villain. With the new cast it’s not entirely clear if Jason Clarke will be back to reprise his role, but with the film now focused on the war between the humans and the apes, director Matt Reeves is looking to cast new villains.

A new report says that Woody Harrelson (Zombieland, True Detective) has now joined the cast as a villain. More on the story after the jump.

‘War Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Finds New Human Lead

Gabriel Chavarria

The reboot of the Planet of the Apes film franchise has been built around Caesar (Andy Serkis), the chimp who would help lead his fellow primates in a revolution against their human captors. Since the events of the first film, the Simian flu has nearly wiped out all of humanity, with a few remaining survivors building an immunity. However, tensions are still high as the some of the humans blame the apes for the spread of the sickness, and ultimately, an act of double cross from the ape faction combined with human hostility would lead to war against each other.

It wouldn’t be much of a Planet of the Apes without humans in it. James Franco and Jason Clarke played our human heroes in the last two films, and now War of the Planet of the Apes will be getting a brand new human lead.

New reports are confirming that East Los High actor Gabriel Chavarria will join the human faction in Matt ReevesWar of the Planet of the Apes. More on this story below.

Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive #1
Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton
Art by Rachael Stott
Colors by Charlie Kirchoff
Letters by Tom B. Long
IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios
Release date: December 31, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Comics book publishers IDW Publishing and BOOM! Studios bring two fan-favorite franchises together for the first time in Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive, a 5-issue miniseries which sees the original Star Trek crew enter the world of the original Planet Of The Apes. While this crossover seems unlikely, this is Star Trek we’re talking about – Captain Kirk and crew manage to boldly go where no man has gone before and live to tell about it.

Star Trek/Planet Of The Apes #1 is mainly set-up for the collision of these two worlds in what largely feels like a typical Star Trek comic book story. Crew members in disguise beam to the surface for some quick reconnaissance, hasty retreat required; Spock ascertains just enough information from the data retrieved to make the daring Captain Kirk want to rush into uncharted territory to investigate; and there’s a whole Captain’s Log portion that gives you the background you need so that the action can begin.
