Third Planet of the Apes Movie Gets The Title 'War of the Planet of the Apes'
After the 'Rise' and the 'Dawn' we are preparing ourselves for the 'War' as rumours circulate as to what the official title for the third Planet of the Apes movie will be.
It'll supposedly go by the name, 'War of the Planet of the Apes' and will be released on July 14, 2017. It's not surprising the third movie would feature the word war in its title, as the last movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, ended with Caesar (played by Andy Serkis) warning that the actions in that film had started a war with the humans. Collider broke the news, although no official announcement from Fox or director Matt Reeves has been made.
During press interviews before the release of Dawn, Reeves spoke about the inevitable war Caesar would have with the humans. "As this story continues, we know that war is not avoided by the end of Dawn," the director said. "That is going to take us into the world of what he is grappling with. Where he is going to be thrust into circumstances that he never, ever wanted to deal with, and was hoping he could avoid. And now he is right in the middle of it. The things that happen in that story test him in huge ways, in the ways in which his relationship with Koba haunts him deeply. It’s going to be an epic story. I think you’ve probably read that I sort of described it where in the first film was very much about his rise from humble beginnings to being a revolutionary. The second movie was about having to rise to the challenge of being a great leader in the most difficult of times. This is going to be the story that is going to cement his status as a seminal figure in ape history, and sort of leads to an almost biblical status. He is going to become like a mythic ape."
