Writer-director Matt Reeves escapes the ape-pocalypse to drop by for a chat about his new film, War For The Planet Of The Apes, starring Andry Serkis and Woody Harrelson.
In the third instalment of the rebooted Planet Of The Apes franchise, a new threat looms over the peaceful simian civilisation built among the redwood trees: an army of humans led by the ruthless Colonel (Harrelson), who believes he is mankind’s last hope. After a battle in which the apes suffer devastating losses, Caesar (Serkis), their noble, hyper-intelligent leader, fears he may have to abandon the path of mercy he has so far shown to humans. Wrestling with his darker instincts, Caesar embarks on a quest to avenge his kind that brings him face to face with the Colonel in the ultimate battle for dominion over Earth. Director Matt Reeves raises the stakes with his second film in the critically acclaimed franchise, blending spectacular graphics and emotion to thrilling effect.
In cinemas now. #WFTPOTA
