Political lines have been drawn and the battle drums are booming as Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes prepares to assault theaters this Friday.

Anticipation for the final piece of this modern Apes prequel trilogy is off the charts, and early reviews have been enthusiastically kind, especially for the captivating CGI and mo-cap work by the wizards at Weta Digital.

Here's a fresh new clip released by 20th Century Fox, with Steve Zahn's Bad Ape and Maurice hustling down a dark tunnel searching for an escape route.

It's truly remarkable how lifelike the apes look in the limited light of the sewers without descending into the "uncanny valley" territory, but instead become a perfectly natural experience we accept without question.

War for the Planet of the Apes breaks out on July 14.
