It’s less than a month until we return to an Earth that has been dramatically reshaped into a place that could soon be called a planet of the apes, and Fox has released one last big look at its latest chapter in the long-running saga. Half of this final Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer is all about brewing conflict and watching humanity further lose hold on the planet.
And then things just explode, and that war that Caesar talks about in his steadily-improving speech just explodes. A lot of the footage here is stuff we’ve seen before, but that’s OK; it’s good to save the best stuff for the final film. And Matt Reeves’ sequel to the surprise hit from 2011 looks like it firmly takes the reins of the story in a way that could be very satisfying for Apes fans, indeed. Read More »

Produced by Terrence Malick, The Better Angels tells a slightly different “young Mr. Lincoln” story than the one we’re used to. The film, written and directed by A.J. Edwards (who worked for Malick on films such as The Tree of Life and To the Wonder) has a very obvious visual influence from the film’s producer, and a strong cast that includes Jason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling, Wes Bentley and Braydon Denney.
Does it all come together? Reviews out of Sundance were mixed, with some praising the aesthetic and mood, and others opining that the film never measures up to its aspirations. A teaser trailer will give you some idea of what’s in store; check it out below. Read More »

Rise of the Planet of the Apes ended with humanity in dire straits, and based on the first trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes things haven’t improved much for our kind since then. The film picks up about eight years later, when the struggle against the virus and the infighting among the humans have destroyed civilization as we know it.
But the few humans who are left are eager to pick up the pieces and put themselves back together, and it seems that starts with a conversation with the apes, led by Caesar (Andy Serkis). Think it’s going to go well? Watch the first trailer after the jump and make your guesses.
