As long as Andy Serkis is around and Matt Reeves doesn’t get tired of making Planet of the Apes movies, I’m perfectly fine with this film series continuing forever. The rebooted Planet of the Apes series so far has been able to show how to do a rebooted series correctly: move away from what the previous film versions did and make it your own. With Andy Serkis returning and Matt Reeves’ great directing job able to continue from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, there’s plenty to like about this upcoming sequel/trilogy conclusion.
The concept of these apes growing more and more intelligent as the movie series progresses is so incredibly interesting to behold, especially when they’re characters from the first movie (excluding Caesar). Again, Serkis looks endlessly intriguing and fitting to the Caesar character, Reeves’ direction looks top-notch, and the Woody Harrelson as Colonel should prove to provide the film with a great lead antagonist.
Quite simply, this movie has the potential to be the best installment in the series, and that’s really saying something for what could prove to be one of the best film trilogies in recent years.
What do you think of the trailer? Do you think they should stop the series after this or keep it going? Is there anything Andy Serkis CAN’T play? Let us know in the comments below!
