It's here! The most-awaited trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes has finally arrived. The third movie in the series of sci-fi and animal-based action movie is set for the big screen next July, and this teaser is engaging in an epic SmackDown between apes and humans. Check out the video below, with the awesome poster of this story.

The movie is directed by well-known Matt Reeves, who also forged 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. On the primate news, it stars Andy Serkis (King Kong, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Steve Zahn (The Ridiculous 6, Dallas Buyers Club), and Judy Greer (Ant-Man, Jurassic World), while Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games, True Detective) heads up the humans trying to reclaim the earth from the apes.

Earth: Reclaiming What Humans Once Had

The official synopsis of the film states: "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."

As this year's New York Comic-Con, Reeves spoke about the big impacts of the film. "One of the first things that Mark and I did was watch a million movies," he said, via About.com. "We decided to do what people fantasize what Hollywood screenwriters get to do but no one actually does. We got Fox to give us a theater and we watched movie after movie."

"We watched every Planet of the Apes movie, war movies, westerns, Empire Strikes Back... We just thought, 'We have to pretend we have all the time in the world,' even though we had limited time. We got really inspired."

War For The Planet of the Apes will hit cinemas on July 14, 2017.
