Matt Reeves says war movies & Bible epics inspired Planet of the Apes

With all the movies coming out this summer WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES is going to have to do a lot in order to stand out from the pack of aliens, fighting robots and talking cars. This shouldn’t be difficult, though, as director Matt Reeves recently revealed how being inspired by blockbusters of old gave it style that will separate from the rest of the summer pack....

The battle is on in new War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES will finally give us the insane and chaotic ape v. human action we’ve been waiting for since the series was rebooted back in 2011. We’re talking full-on bedlam with guns, bows and apes on horseback. We were wrong to laugh at them picking at their butts. We were so wrong. Watch the new trailer below, along with a new poster!   In War for the Planet...

War for the Planet of the Apes will bring back an original series character

As a big fan of the original PLANET OF THE APES franchise, I was a little leery when 20th Century Fox announced that they'd be rebooting the series, after all, Tim Burton 's attempt at a reboot didn't exactly fill me with optimism. Thankfully RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was surprisingly decent and its follow-up, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, proved to be one of those...

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...

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.
