will not find us.

We must leave tonight!


That's impossible.

How long can we wait, Lake?

Soldiers getting closer!


Your son's been gone, Caesar...

He doesn't know how hard it's been.

I know you are scared...

We all are...

But we are still planning...

Yes. We must find

a safe way out of woods.

There were only two of you.

But we are many.

We will find a way out of here.

Apes together strong.

Stay here, son.

Protect your mother and brother!

Caesar! What's wrong?

How many on patrol?

- Five? Six?

- Get them!

Luca, get Rocket too.

Unit calling command.


- Rocket? What happened?

- I heard him talking! Colonel is here!

Ninety-nine, target acquired.

Ninety-nine, target acquired.

Repeat, King Kong is dead.

Let's go.

I get up from here.


We can't find Winter!

He was scared! I think he betrayed us!

Have you found Cornelius yet?

We're still searching.

Let's go look for Caesars little son.

Come, Cornelius.

You're safe now.


You loved my son.

Look after his brother,

until I return.

You're not coming with

us to our new home?


Go with Lake.

Caesar! You're not going after them?!

Not them, him.

Caesar, you are our leader!

We can't leave without you!

You must.

The soldiers will be back soon.


When I find him,

the soldiers will all come after me.

That makes you the best

chance to get out of woods.

Where is he going?!

Caesar! Caesar!

The soldiers' camp is always moving.

My guards think they

know where it is.

- Let me take you.

- You need me to back you up!



I know what it's like to lose a son.

I may not make it back.

That's why I'm coming.

To make sure you do.

Guards think soldiers here...

Always fires burning.

No one here.

Search the area.

Just gonna put this down.
