War is upon us in new War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

The rebooted series of PLANET OF THE APES movies (which I’m sure were met with scoffings galore when they were first announced) have been shockingly good. The first was an above-average action flick with a tremendous turn by Andy Serkis and the sequel was, well, there are no words for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Now WAR is on the horizon, and needless to say the third entry...

Set Visit: Andy Serkis & Terry Notary Talk War for the Planet of the Apes

Above my head and all around us, the grey, cloud-choked sky began to darken. Then, in what precious light was left in the evening sky, I saw what looked like two humanoid robots making their way toward the sanctuary of our heated press tent. With cheshire grins stretched across their dotted faces, actors Andy Serkis and Terry Notary arrived in full motion capture regalia. As they each...

Set Visit: Dylan Clarke & Karen Konoval Talk War For the Planet of the Apes

It's a still and gray afternoon in Vancouver, British Columbia. As I exhale, I see spiraling ghosts of precipitation escape my lips with every breath. All around me the air smells like a combination of drenched pavement, freshly baked bread, and the burning of oil. I can hear the mechanical chatter of gears as workmen navigate cranes several of which are carrying a green canvas the...

Set Visit: Everything You Need To Know About War For the Planet of the Apes

Rebooting a franchise can often be a tall order, particularly when launching your project in a time when anything that evokes nostalgia will be scrutinized harshly by the very audience you’re hoping to entertain.

NYCC 2016: Andy Serkis and Matt Reeves talk War for the Planet of the Apes!

Just yesterday, the world got its first look at footage from WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES footage via a special presentation at New York Comic-Con. And while of course we didn't see much (the film doesn't come out until July, after all, and they're still deep into post-production), what we did see was exceptionally cool. A brief sequence in which the apes - deep in the...

The Planet of the Apes franchise could continue without Caesar

After RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES wound up being a bigger hit than any of us suspected, it became clear that Andy Serkis ' Caesar was going to be the real star of the rebooted series. The sequel put even more focus on Caesar and his community of apes and WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES looks as though it will be the most ape-centric entry yet. Assuming the upcoming sequel is a...

War for the Planet of the Apes synopsis teases an epic battle for the future

When it was announced that Fox would be rebooting THE PLANET OF THE APES franchise, I wasn't overly optimistic; the original movies make up one of my favourite sci-fi franchises of all time and their first attempt at a reboot, Tim Burton 's PLANET OF THE APES, didn't exactly fill me with confidence. Thankfully RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was a wonderful surprise and its...

War for the Planet of the Apes logo revealed; announcement coming on Sunday

I'm still a little amazed that the modern PLANET OF THE APES films have been received so well; I'm very pleased that they have, but I honestly never expected that they would become box-office successes. RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES were excellent films and made this PLANET OF THE APES fan very happy. The third entry in the re-imagined...

Judy Greer will return for more ape action in War for the Planet of the Apes

As a massive fan of all five original PLANET OF THE APES films, I was overjoyed when RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES not only turned out to be a good film, but one successful enough to kick off a whole new franchise. Matt Reeves ' sequel, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, somehow managed to top its predecessor in both critical praise and box-office and just recently, Reeves started...
