For the most part, reboots are pretty much terrible but there a few exceptions and one of them is definitely the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise started in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and continued magnificently with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but, next summer, the war for control of the Earth begins. After some treachery in the last movie on both the ape and human sides, any chance at a lasting peace was shattered and now Caesar (Andy Serkis) has to lead his apes into battle against a heavily armed human force led by The Colonel (Woody Harrelson). Matt Reeves is back after directing Dawn and it looks absolutely phenomenal, with gorgeous sets and iconic imagery and this war looks like it’s going to be dark and brutal. War For the Planet of the Apes arrives on July 14th next summer and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
