Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes premieres in Philippine theaters nationwide

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Welcoming a new chapter in the celebrated Planet of the Apes franchise, the Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is now showing in theaters nationwide. The latest action-adventure film immerses audiences in a riveting world where apes rule and humans struggle to survive.

Early reactions to the movie called it a “new hope for the Apes franchise.’”During its Hollywood premiere, the Wes Ball movie received overwhelmingly positive reviews — noting that the sequel can reel in non-fans with its new chapter while still spotlighting the time-honored legacy of Caesar for the franchise’s loyal.

In the Philippines, the reign of the apes is now in full swing. Proximus Caesar makes his mark all around Metro Manila — with his menacing gaze towering over passersby of buildings, street posts, and jeepneys— while media, content creators, and partners joined the Philippine premiere in Metro Manila, Iloilo City, and Pampanga City on May 07.


Set in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the apes hold power and control, the 2024 movie spectacle tells the story of Noa, a young, naïve ape who doesn’t know anything about the outside world where the Apes’ previous leader, Caesar, has become a legend. Director Wes Ball shared, “If the last three movies were the apes in their stone age, they’re entering their bronze age. We’re starting to see cultures develop within different clans. We see what has happened to the world.”

With a stellar cast featuring Owen Teague, Freya Allan, and Peter Macon, the Kingdom of Planet of the Apes is filled with riveting storytelling, thrilling action sequences, and breathtaking visuals. Likewise, the advanced special effects and groundbreaking motion-capture technology bring the apes to life in an intensely real way, making this film a must-see cinematic experience to be enjoyed with family and friends on the biggest screen possible.
