I am a huge Planet of the Apes fan so when they announced they were once again rebooting the franchise with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes I was a bit nervous like most fans were. Surprisingly the film delivered more than we all expected and was really good and kicked off the series with a bang leading right into 2014s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and 2017s War For The Planet of the Apes. It felt like it was the end of this series, but here we are with the next chapter Kingdom of the Planet of the apes starring Owen Teague, Freya Allan, Kevin Durand, Peter Macon, and William H. Macy from The Maze Runner trilogy director Wes Ball at the helm.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes follows 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.


In addition to the latest entry into the iconic franchise, this release also features bonus content including deleted/extended scenes, documentaries on making the film and its legacy, and a full-length alternative cut with a split-screen comparison between the final cut of the film and a version with unfinished VFX with optional audio commentary by director Wes Ball, editor Dan Zimmerman and VFX supervisor Erik Winquist. The never-before-seen alternate cut gives fans a unique opportunity to see the actors’ performances before the visual effects were completed.


The 4K UHD also arrives in a collectible limited edition SteelBook® with custom artwork by artist Dylan Cole. Finally, fans will have a chance to bring

home the entire Planet of the Apes saga on Digital at select retailers with a special Planet of the Apes 10 film bundle.


Enter the next chapter of the world of Apes when Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes hits digital on July 9th and then on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD on August 27th from 20th Century Home Entertainment.
