Caesar and his apes are forced into battle by a human army, this is ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’.
In this third instalment of the modern franchise, Caesar and his kind are forced into conflict when an army of humans led by the Colonel (Woody Harrelson) aim to seize control of the planet once and for all.
Whilst I enjoyed ‘Planet of the Apes’ – mostly for the human elements, sentiment and pinnacle moments (When Caesar first spoke it sent shivers through me) – I found the 2014 sequel ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ rather less endearing and struggled to engage with the more brutal plot.
‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ looks very much like it will continue where the last film left off in terms of adversity and violence.
‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ is scheduled for a 14th of July 2017 release with slight regional variations. Check IMDB for your country.
