The first trailer for 20th Century Studios’ Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes was released earlier this week. A new entry in the studio’s global, epic franchise, the all-new action-adventure spectacle will open exclusively in theaters nationwide on Friday, May 24, 2024.
Director Wes Ball breathes new life into the global, epic franchise set several generations in the future following Caesar’s reign, in which apes are the dominant species living harmoniously and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows. As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes stars Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Kevin Durand, Peter Macon, and William H. Macy. The screenplay is by Josh Friedman and Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Patrick Aison, based on characters created by Jaffa & Silver. Ball, Joe Hartwick, Jr., Jaffa, Silver, and Jason Reed are the producers, with Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping serving as executive producers.
