“Apes, together, strong”
Matt Reeves returns to direct this third instalment of the ‘Planet of the Apes’ reboot, which is his second in the directors chair, having previously helmed the second film, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’. Reeves worked with Mark Bomback to write the script.
The fantastic Andy Serkis dons his motion capture suit to return as Caesar, leader of the apes, who appears to be struggling to keep his people safe from the humans, who are relentlessly attacking the apes. In the trailer, Caesar makes it clear he doesn’t want any sort of war with the humans, but if push comes to shove, he’s going to defend his family with everything he’s got.
This final trailer show us Caesar finding a young girl (Amiah Miller), who he offers to help and look after, much to the confusion of some of his fellow apes. It’s not clear if Miller’s character (who remains nameless on IMDB) will have a bigger role to play than it appears, for example if the Colonel (Woody Harrelson) see’s Caesar as a threat, he sure as hell isn’t going to like the idea of him having a human child.
