It Was Earth All Along In The Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes Super Bowl Trailer

If chimps make you queasy, stay clear from Wes Ball's Super Bowl trailer of "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes." His sequel trilogy picks up several years after Caesar has reigned and Noa is pitted against evolved ape leader Proximus Caesar (Kevin Durand).
So much time has passed that most human civilization has dispersed to decaying, greenery-covered ruins on Earth; memories from the prequel trilogy are mostly distant memories for Noa. While others revere him almost religiously. "You're seeing what influence and evolution Caesar left behind," Durand noted to Empire earlier this year; adding that Proximus Caesar is named such because Caesar is considered the highest rank within Ape society and "there always seems to be someone that imposes their ideology onto everyone around them". However, like every episode in human history there's always someone that comes along and forces everyone into believing something frightening them into believing something completely out-of-left-field."

While humans were once dominant species on this Earth, thanks to our own viral infection we've become helpless and feral generations ago, so they hunt us like animals - no longer do we worry about washing dishes or paying taxes, perhaps the Kingdom of the Planet of Apes might not be such an unpleasant place?

Welcome to a not-too-distant-but-still-pretty-distant future

"Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes" takes place approximately 300 years after "War for the Planet of the Apes," in which Caesar found new home for evolved apes before dying peacefully and leaving behind son Cornelius; perhaps "Kingdom" will reveal Noa is somehow related to Caesar; let's just hope was still operational!

On May 10, 2024, "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes" made its cinematic debut.
