The Planet of the Ape films has been around since the late 60’s. However, if you are new to these ape flicks then let me fill you in on this franchise. Set to release in cinema 2017 Caesar and his Ape colony are back.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out in 2011 followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Now we have War for the Planer of the Apes. Hmm I think these titles sound like a working progress, don’t you think?
I very much enjoyed all of these films and of course, we all want the apes to win. I’m looking forward to seeing this really cool ape in action as he take us along on his journey to war. Caesar played by Andy Serkis and his crew of apes are forced into a dangerous conflict with the humans. With many loses Caesar reveals his darker side in a quest to avenge his kind.
Here is a bit of context to the films. We are currently on the New Reboot, personally that’s the era I’m enjoying the most, have a read below.
