The title of the third film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise has been revealed and it shouldn’t surprise anyone who watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Since the previous film concluded with the stalemate between Caeser’s tribe and the humans of San Francisco bubbling over into bloodshed, it’s only natural that the follow-up would be titled War of the Planet of the Apes.

With Fox currently pushing to get Andy Serkis nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' and with the film hitting Blu-ray and DVD soon, and with a third installment in the works, it was only a matter of time before we started hearing rumblings about the sequel.

Now, new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' concept art has hit the web, which seems to be along the lines of this earlier draft.

Though he won't admit it verbally, there's something in the tone of Matt Reeves' voice that reveals that he knows that he has something special with his new film, 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.' I suspect Matt Reeves would be a terrible poker player.

A movie like ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ exists only to make money. And it did make money -- a lot of money. And there are a lot of movies that fit into this supposed “blockbuster” (or, if at Blockbuster, the “box office buster”) category. These movie don’t have to be good. People just see them. That’s why it is really notable when one of these movies is as good as ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is.
