With every new bit of footage, the 3rd instalment in the best reboot franchise just keeps looking better and better. “War For The Planet Of The Apes” just might be better than the last one, which was also directed by Matt Reeves. Today, we have a lengthy clip from the movie, and this one introduces us to a new character with the curious name of Bad Ape (voiced by Steve Zahn). The interaction between him and Caesar is absorbing stuff, and it’s clear to see that this ape is not quite right in the head. Intriguing. And it’s a great compliment to the filmmakers when you can safely say the apes are the most interesting and well-developed characters in the series.
here’s the official synopsis: “In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.”
“War For The Planet Of The Apes” stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, and Terry Notary. It premieres 14th July.
