Synopsis Released for 'War of the Planet of the Apes'
I don't know why I keep forgetting that this film is coming out next year. I mean, I loved the first two and with Matt Reeves is back in the director's chair; so there's really no reason not to be completely hyped for what's next in store for Caeser. Fox has released an official synopsis for the film which looks like we may have some epic-in-proportion ape-on-human warfare. Read below:
"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 this 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."
This seems like the next natural step for the franchise and I, for one, cannot wait to see this when it comes out next summer. I'm just hoping it manages to stick the trilogy landing. We've had countless trilogy-capper failures in the past and I would hate to add War of the Planet of the Apes to the pile. I have faith in Matt Reeves to bring us a satisfying picture though, so I remain almost totally optimistic about the project. Plus, we're at least guaranteed another phenomenal Andy Serkis performance.
War of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters July 14th, 2017.
