Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
2014's DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was a huge box office hit, pulling in $708 million worldwide. It was no surprise when it was announced that a follow up film was coming.
As of right now, it is not too much longer until the release of director Matt Reeves' upcoming sequel WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES.
New concept art courtesy of EW gives us a look at the gorilla Luca (Michael Adamthwaite) who is sharing a moment with a mute girl known as Nova (Amiah Miller). EW says that this is the same character that Linda Harrison took on back in the 1968 film.
There is no word on whether or not Nova will cross paths with an astronaut named Taylor, who was originally portrayed by Charlton Heston.
Reeves tells EW that she will play a key role in Caesar's (Andy Serkis) inner turmoil saying that:
“The girl is his pull back to his empathy and — for lack of a better word — his human side.”
WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Gabriel Chavarria, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Sara Canning, Aleks Paunovic, and Amiah Miller. The film is written by Reeves and Mark Bomback.
"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 will be in theaters July 14th, 2017.
