The new trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes is out and the franchise appears to be building on the strength of the previous moves to bring us an epic future sci-fi war between Apes and Humans.
After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.
Although the story is heavy on action, with the face off between Caesar and Woody Harrelson’s “Colonel” being a prominent part of the action, the story obviously continues the metaphysical commentary on what it it is to be human, what it is to be an ape and whether the two can live alongside each other.
I’ve got a feeling they can’t. Whether this will be the final film in the franchise reboot is hard to tell. It looks like this film will bring us to the starting point of the original movies, but will the originals get a reboot as well. I have a feeling they will…
