The time for peace and humanity has passed.

Apes and humans are back to battling one another in the latest "War for the Planet of the Apes" trailer, released Thursday by 20th Century Fox. The preview reunites viewers with Caesar (played by Andy Serkis) and the apes, who seem to be minding their own business when humans seek them out with the goal of destroying them once and for all. Of course, that means the war between man and ape is back on -- just as the film's title suggests.

From what we've seen so far, Caesar and the apes have a formidable foe to contend with. The Colonel (Woody Harrelson), a ruthless military leader, shows no qualms when it comes to wiping out the rival species. He's definitely not messing around.

"There are times when it is necessary to abandon our humanity to save humanity," he says.

This war is going to be brutal.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" hits theaters on July 14.
