We at TG feel the new Planet of the Apes movies really beat the odds. We were against a remake, especially a prequel, because what was the point? We know from the end of the original how we reverted back to apes when we dropped the bomb, but the new Apes series not only proved us doubters wrong, but the sequel was even better.
Now the next Apes movie will be called War of the Planet of the Apes. As Collider tells us, “Director Matt Reeves was already pushing to send the apes into war for the ending of Dawn,” and that “War will likely be the biggest Apes film yet.”
Director Matt Reeves said that War “is about [Caesar] becoming the seminal figure for ape history. It’s like myth ascension, him becoming the ape Moses, for lack of a better sort of character to model him after.”
There’s a release date for War, July 14, 2017, and let’s hope the third movie is just as consistently good, if not better, than the first two modern Apes flicks.
