Synopsis

War for the Planet of the Apes will play in select IMAX 2D theatres.

Fifteen years ago a scientific experiment gone wrong gave RISE to a species of intelligent apes … and a virus that nearly destroyed the human race.  The Simian Flu, as it came to be known, brought humanity to the brink of extinction.  The survivors, the few who were immune to the virus, came to envy the dead … while the apes continued to thrive in the safety of the woods north of San Franciso …

With the DAWN of their burgeoning civilization, the apes flourished in the absence of human contact … until they were discovered by a small band of the desparate survivors striving to establish a new colony of their own.  The colonists and apes struggled to coexist.  But their fragile peace was shattered by Koba, an ape who could not resist taking revenge on his former captors.  Caesar, leader of the apes, attempted to restore order.  But there was no turning back from the brutal fighting that has already begun.

The embattled colonists sent out frantic distress calls for help, unsure if anyone was even out there to hear them.  The signal was received 800 miles north at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where hundreds of soldiers hade taken refuge after the viral apocalypse.  These men and women were all that remained of the US Armed Services.  Responding to the call, a hardened fighting division, led by a decorated Colonel of the Special Forces, was sent down to join the battle.  Caesar and the apes retreated to the woods, but the human forces pursued, determined to destroy the apes once and fall.  For two years, the soldiers have been searching in vain for Caesar, who is rumored to be commanding his apes from a base, hidden deep in the woods.

The WAR rages on …
