You can always look forward to some amazing unveilings once Comic-Con rolls around (California & New York) due to the fact it produces jaw-dropping moments that not even award shows can capture anymore. Today, 20th Century Fox reveals something quite ominous for the upcoming ‘War for the Planet of the Apes‘ film. A digital billboard poster can be seen in Times Square of what is simply an ape covered in snow.
The Planet of the Apes franchise is among one of the most success film franchises of all-time. In 2014, we’ve seen why as the prequel’s sequel ‘Dawn of the Planet of Apes‘ touched on a moving and thoughtful nerve that sets humanity and apes on the path to war. As the New York Comic-Con is underway some of the film’s footage will be revealed during the weekend but in the meantime, 20th Century has treated the fans to a little teaser.
“You must go… before fighting begins. I am sorry. War has begun.”
