After Tim Burton and Mark Wahlberg left a measureable layer of stink all over the Planet of the Apes franchise with a lukewarm reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise back in 2001, the suits could've buried the property, figuring maybe it was kinda/sorta something meant for another time and another place. Someone realized a good thing when they saw it and resurrected the series, albeit with an all-new setting closer to the modern era with 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Sure, it took an entire decade to do so, but the payoff from this new continuity has been incredible. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) was a bit more bubblegum than substance (for my tastes), but it continued to build the Apes' mythology in this new direction ... which brings us to today.
The studio has dropped the trailer for the latest installment -- War for the Planet of the Apes -- and this looks to add a whole new chapter to Caesar's life story. This new coming attraction doesn't have all of the war(rish) bluster that Dawn's sneak peeks did, but since is the first look I suspect there's much more to follow.
