On Sunday night, during the Super Bowl, 20th Century Fox presented the official trailer for the long-awaited continuation of the legendary film series - "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes". Coming to theaters this spring, this latest installment promises a fresh narrative nearly three centuries after the events of 2017's War for the Planet of the Apes.

After decades of dominating the film industry, the "Planet of the Apes" franchise continues with a new story that promises dramatic twists and unexpected allies. “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes,” which hits theaters on May 10, is set in a dystopian future where apes have taken over the leadership of the planet and humanity has regressed to a primitive state.

At the center of the story is Proximus Caesar, played by Kevin Durand, a tyrannical leader who subjugates other ape clans with cunning and force. He holds the secret of how the apes became the dominant species firmly in his hands, allowing him to maintain his power and enslave humanity. However, there is hope in a young chimpanzee named Noah, who discovers Proximus's dark secrets.

Determined to uncover the truth and free both the apes and humanity, Noah leads the movement against Proximus' tyranny. The film explores themes of power, manipulation and the search for truth in a world where all hope for freedom seems lost. Director Wes Ball and an all-star cast including William H. Macy, Travis Jeffrey, Lydia Peckham, Neil Sandilands and Peter Macon promise that "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes" will be another major addition to the franchise that first began in 1968, based on based on Pierre Boulle's science fiction novel.
