To score one of these exclusive posters, purchase tickets online or in venue before before 20 July for screenings between 11 and 20 July until stocks last and you’ll go home with a little piece of Ape history.
How it all began
To say that Caesar and his apes have been through a lot is something of an understatement. Torn from the jungle in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar learned first hand the remarkable scope for both kindness and cruelty at the hands of his human captors. As one civilisation began to fall apart, the young ape lost both his original and adoptive families only to fight for the creation of a new one.
Then, there was the dawn
There was a glimmer of hope in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes that the survivors of the old world, both ape and human, could coexist and even help one another survive.

We’re not worried so much whose side you’re going to be on this time out, but there are real stakes to keep you on the edge of your seat as the third movie in the franchise unfolds on an unprecedented scale. “Bold”, “phenomenal” and “with gravitas and real depth”, War for the Planet of the Apes is getting reviews that summer blockbusters never get. Don’t miss this spectacular conclusion on the big screen.
