WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES - Official International Trailer

There's a new International trailer for War For the Planet of the Apes with added, unseen footage. This movie will most likely be of the epic variety. Can't wait.

Last week I wrote:

This looks good, especially with addition of Woody Harrelson. I'm still wondering, where's James Franco's scientist? Didn't he start this whole mess? He should be jailed.

I recently re-watched the original 1968 film and the social issues raised in that film are just not present in these latter-day films. Different times, I guess. I do have to say that the first film of this reboot series, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, was far better than its sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Rise had less strenuous action and more character-based plotting, but alas when you're trying to build a massive blockbuster franchise you probably need to add more and more action to please the mainstream. 

Here's the Official synopsis for this upcoming sequel:

In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel.  After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.  As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
“War For The Planet Of The Apes” opens on July 14, 2017.
