War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots

If Matt ReevesWar for the Planet of the Apes is as good as its trailers make it out to be – and we have no reason to think it won’t live up to that high bar – that should put these movies in the conversation of the best cinematic trilogies ever made. The two films before this one, especially Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, are tremendous pieces of pop storytelling, and though the new one looks to take a darker turn, it’s exactly where this story has been heading from the start.

20th Century Fox has unveiled two new War for the Planet of the Apes TV spots as a nice chaser for the new trailer that dropped earlier this week. Check them out below.

War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

The Planet of the Apes prequel series is by far the best movie franchise currently playing cinemas, Star Wars excluded. A new trailer for War For the Planet of the Apes teases a conclusion with the tagline “Witness The End.” Does this mean the third installment will be the last? The War For the Planet of the Apes ending doesn’t necessarily mean an end for this franchise.

war for the planet of the apes trailer

The final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes will bring about “the end” — but for whom?

We find Caesar (Andy Serkis) broken, physically and emotionally, by the toll of war, as the fate of apes and humanity hangs in the balance. But as the war escalates to its final act, led on the human side by Woody Harrelson and what looks like a primate who has betrayed his kind, Caesar finds hope in a silent, lost child who he takes under his wing.

war for the planet of the apes teaser

It’s the beginning of the end for the Planet of the Apes franchise, or so the enthralling teaser trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes suggests. Or maybe it’s just referring tot he human race?

The teaser for the final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third installment in the Planet of the Apes reboot series, is quite apocalyptic, painting a foreboding picture of human history while showing little new footage from the upcoming film. Yes, that’s Charlton Heston narrating, guys.

the batman screenplay

When Ben Affleck vacated the director’s chair of his upcoming film The Batman, we knew Warner Bros. would need to find someone special to step in if they wanted to keep fans buzzing about the film’s possibilities. Hiring Matt Reeves, the man behind Cloverfield and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, seemed like a pretty solid play. The dude has some serious skills, and after Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad failed to generate the level of excitement from fans and critics the studio hoped for, Reeves may be the one who can get things moving in the right direction.

The filmmaker has been deep in post-production on War for the Planet of the Apes, so we haven’t heard much from him yet about what he plans to do with The Batman. But in a new interview, Reeves compared those two movies and explained why he’s excited to bring the Caped Crusader back to the big screen.

2017 summer movie preview

The summer season is almost upon us and you know what that means: movies are about to get bigger, louder, and more expensive. And, if we’re lucky, they’ll also be pretty great!

The /Film team examined the list of every single major wide release (our indie and streaming preview arrives next week) hitting theaters this summer and argued, debated, and occasionally agreed on which 25 movies we’re most looking forward to watching over the coming months. The staff then voted, ranking them from “movies we want to see” to “movies we want to see right now.” So here’s our 2017 summer movie preview, which features superheroes, evil dolls, talking cars, pirates, sharks, dead strippers, World War II, and so much more.
