Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes


“No. Together, strong.”



Three hundred years after the events of War for the Planet of the Apes (2017), the world is a drastically different place. Ape civilisations have expanded beyond the oasis that visionary Caesar led his fellow apes to before he died, and humans have regressed into a feral, primitive state after the Simian Flu pandemic. They’ve lost their ability for language and they’re hunted by apes. One young chimpanzee, Noa (Owen Teague, It), starts to uncover secrets that have been kept from them by the tyrannical ape king Proximus Caesar, when he encounters a human, Mae (Freya Allen, The Witcher) who can talk. Noa starts to question everything he thought he knew about apes, humans and what the future could hold for the two species.

“Captivating performances, astounding VFX and richly developed characters”


“Harks back to the days of the Hollywood Western”

The Telegraph UK

“Lush and nuanced”


“Another worthy instalment in a series that is pretty much unparalleled in contemporary times.”

Vanity Fair

Why You Should See This Film

This is a huge adventure spectacle that demands to be seen on a big screen. Shot on location in Sydney, the film uses advanced motion capture technology, similar to that used in Avatar: The Way of the Water (2022) to render the movements of the ape characters astonishingly lifelike. This is the tenth film in the overall Planet of the Apes franchise, but since it’s set hundreds of years later, you don’t need to have seen all of the other films to come in fresh at this one.
