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.

Woody Harrelson

War of the Planet of the Apes recently added East Los High actor Gabriel Chavarria to the cast. The previous two films had some sort of human antagonist, with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes having one human villain and one ape villain. With the new cast it’s not entirely clear if Jason Clarke will be back to reprise his role, but with the film now focused on the war between the humans and the apes, director Matt Reeves is looking to cast new villains.

A new report says that Woody Harrelson (Zombieland, True Detective) has now joined the cast as a villain. More on the story after the jump.

Gabriel Chavarria

The reboot of the Planet of the Apes film franchise has been built around Caesar (Andy Serkis), the chimp who would help lead his fellow primates in a revolution against their human captors. Since the events of the first film, the Simian flu has nearly wiped out all of humanity, with a few remaining survivors building an immunity. However, tensions are still high as the some of the humans blame the apes for the spread of the sickness, and ultimately, an act of double cross from the ape faction combined with human hostility would lead to war against each other.

It wouldn’t be much of a Planet of the Apes without humans in it. James Franco and Jason Clarke played our human heroes in the last two films, and now War of the Planet of the Apes will be getting a brand new human lead.

New reports are confirming that East Los High actor Gabriel Chavarria will join the human faction in Matt ReevesWar of the Planet of the Apes. More on this story below.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Director: Matt Reeves
Screenwriters: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver
Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Kodi Smit-McPhee
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Release Date: July 11, 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is to Rise of the Planet of the Apes what The Empire Strikes Back is to Star Wars. An incredible, awe-inspiring epic; a monumental achievement in genre filmmaking and one of the year’s very best films.

Directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In), the film begins with a montage of news reports showing the collapse of human civilization in the wake of the ALZ-113 virus. Ten years after the “Simian Flu” epidemic, Caesar (Andy Serkis) governs a growing nation of genetically enhanced apes in the Muir Woods. With his wife Cornelia (Judy Greer) and son River (Nick Thurston), Caesar has established a thriving community for his species – one free of human interference.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm banner

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm
Paperback | Kindle
By Greg Keyes
Titan Books
Release date: May 27, 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm is a novel that’s the official movie prequel to the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is the sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes — the reboot of the franchise that began with 1968’s Planet of the Apes — and is very similar in premise to the fourth installment of the series, 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.

Since Dawn picks up about 10 years after the events of Rise, which saw a group of genetically enhanced apes break out of captivity, Firestorm bridges the gap between the two stories, although it concentrates on the time right after Rise. Dawn, which arrives in theaters on July 11, 2014, finds humanity on the brink of extinction, as a pandemic believed to be caused by the apes wipes out most of the humans. The prequel novel is an original story about how the virus was first detected and what happened in the early days of contagion.
