The third installment of the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise is almost here and should bring a great climax to the story of Caesar and his journey.
WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES was directed by Matt Reeves and written by Reeves and Mark Bomback. As we have watched the evolution of Caesar in RISE OF THE PLANETS OF THE APES to leader in DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, he has maintained the same kindness and willingness throughout to live alongside humanity and find a way to make it work. But no matter how hard he has tried, Caesar has faced opposition from both humans and his own kind. In the third film of the series, we may see the end of peaceful Caesar and introduced to the warrior general who must fight not only to save his people but also for complete domination of the planet.
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.
