If all franchises can be revived as well as Planet of the Apes, we might be okay. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a solid reboot, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was one of the best films of last year, and I have high hopes for War for the Planet of the Apes.
Principal photography has begun on Matt Reeves’ upcoming sequel, and he has tweeted out the first image from filming, which is sure to conjure flashbacks from the original with Charlton Heston riding on horseback along the shore. Of course, if you squint you can see the mo-cap suits on the actors, so we’re sticking with apes on horses when it comes to this shot.
Check out the War for the Planet of the Apes image below. The film opens July 14, 2017, and stars Andy Serkis, Steve Zahn, and Woody Harrelson.
