Adam Frazier   |  

Twentieth Century Fox's War for the Planet of the Apes, starring Andy Serkis as Caesar

War for the Planet of the Apes

Rated PG-13 | 142 Minutes

“Apes. Together. Strong.”

In 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a scientific experiment gives rise to a species of intelligent apes, and a virus that brings humanity to the brink of extinction. The sentient apes flourish in the absence of humans until they’re discovered by a small band of survivors in 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The species struggle to coexist, but their fragile peace is shattered by Koba, a former lab chimp so consumed with hatred for the humans that he betrays his leader, the noble chimpanzee Caesar, to incite war against them.

Enter War for the Planet of the Apes, the third and final chapter of 20th Century Fox’s critically acclaimed series. Directed by Matt Reeves (of Cloverfield, Let Me In, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), War delivers a powerful and poignant climax to one of the greatest film trilogies of all time, with complex characters, soulful performances, and the most impressive special effects I’ve ever seen. Not only is it one of the best movies of the summer, it’s one of the best films of 2017 — an unparalleled work of blockbuster filmmaking that is as thought-provoking as it is awe-inspiring.

Though the Star Wars spinoffs are meant to expand on the universe, they aren’t without problems. Director Josh Trank was let go from the now in limbo Boba Fett film, and Gareth Edwards‘s Rogue One had to go through extensive reshoots with the help of Tony Gilroy. Now comes Phil Lord and Chris Miller being fired from their duty as directors of the still untitled Han Solo film over creative differences. The two were soon after replaced by Ron Howard. But it is why they were fired and the timing of it all that has many of us fascinated about what was going on behind the scenes. More on the story below.

The Glass Castle starring Brie Larson and Naomi Watts

Yes, Brie Larson already has one Academy Award on her mantle. But in reality, that number should be two with her flawless performance in Destin Daniel Cretton‘s Short Term 12. The emotionally draining film had me in tears and was my number one film of 2013.

Nearly four years after Short Term 12, the two reunite for The Glass Castle, an adaptation of Jeanette Walls‘ memoir. Lionsgate has dropped the first trailer for the film. Check it out below.

War for the Planet of the Apes

There’s always a winner and a loser in war. So when it comes to the ongoing battle between man and apes in the Planet of the Apes prequel trilogy, we pretty much know which species is going to lose.

The trailer we saw yesterday for War for the Planet of the Apes was only a tease of what’s to come, but today’s new trailer encapsulates what this war has done to both sides and how one of them will do anything to become the victor. Check it out below.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Hints of War for the Planet of the Apes connecting to the original Planet of the Apes have been lingering since trailers for the movie were released. Though these films are a part of the same universe when that bridge closes the gap is still not clear.

However, a newly released trailer seems to indicate that it might be closer than originally thought. That’s because it has footage that has led up to the latest installment, with Charleston Heston himself providing the narration. Check out the latest trailer below.

War for the Planet of the Apes

Every one of these Planet of the Apes prequels has lived up to its title. So it seems fitting that War for the Planet of the Apes be the apex of the series.

Fox has just dropped a new trailer for the film and it looks to abandon any and all hope of humans and apes living in peace. Instead, it’s going to be a battle to the death in which the surviving faction will emerge as the alpha species. Check out the full trailer below.
