The third installment of the new Planet of the Apes franchise lands this July.
We’ve watched as the apes gained intelligence and the ability to speak. We’ve watched as they simply wanted to be left alone. Now we watch as they go to war in War of the Planet of the Apes.
The newest versions of the Planet of the Apes movies have done something quite surprising. They’ve taken mediocre actors and made them look good playing against CGI apes. This is the true miracle of this movie franchise. Normally, it takes a great actor to play against a character that is not really there and make it seem believable. These were not great actors. And this next movie looks to follow the same formula.
This time it’s Woody Harrelson. Yup. Woody. Woody seems to be leading the humans in battle against the apes. From the preview, it also looks like he might just be believable in the role. However, with Woody leading the humans, it’s no surprise the end result is that earth becomes the Planet of the Apes.
War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters July 14th, 2017 starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Amiah Miller, and Terry Notary.
