When your film has "War" right in the title, you know you have to deliver, and it sounds like "War for the Planet of the Apes" is going all-in with a "deadly conflict" ahead.

"War" is coming in July 2017, as a sequel to 2014's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and the third film in 20th Century Fox's "Planet of the Apes" reboot series that started with 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."

Collider just shared some updates on the 2017 film, including the official synopsis and news that the first footage will be shared by director Matt Reeves (who also directed "Dawn") and star Andy Serkis (Caeser) on Thursday, October 6 at New York Comic-Con.

Here's the 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 this 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."

The Hollywood Reporter previously revealed that Woody Harrelson will play the Colonel.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" is scheduled for release in theaters July 14th, 2017.
