After the rise, comes the dawn. After the dawn, comes war. Days are weird like that on The Planet of the Apes. War for The Planet of the Apes is the third film in this surprisingly successful reboot of the seminal science fiction franchise.
Sure, it’s a well known name but it’s a mixture of smart, sensitive allegorical character-based science fiction combined with a slightly silly concept shouldn’t be a hit in a world where general audiences flock towards Transformers. Matt Reeves returns as director following his success with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, although this time he also has a writing credit.
Motion capture genius Andy Serkis is back as Caesar, the ape that changed everything and this time he’s on a horse. The cast also includes Ty Olsson, Judi Greer and Woody Harrelson.
War for the Planet of the Apes arrives in cinemas on 14 July 2017
