Call me old-fashioned, but the sight of bands of angry apes armed with flaring automatic weapons titilates my inner geek like few other images.  Following closely after last week's first full trailer for Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes, here's a fresh international teaser to peel back and enjoy. The grand scope and sweeping tone of this installment of the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise is even more evident in this latest eye-popping preview, here punched up with added moments of conflict between Caesar and The Colonel (Woody Harrelson) and a snow-packed cavalry attack. This promises to be a stylish spectacle with its range of battlefronts and escalating tensions erupting in a full-scale Man vs Ape assault when it swings into theaters next summer.

Here's the official studio synopsis:

In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

Charge into this new international promo and tell us if you think it's the best of the bunch.
