As we prepare to polish off the crap sandwich that was 2016, we can allow ourselves some scant crumbs of hope as we look out over the slate of movies for the year to come. There are some exciting prospects...

On Thursday, 20th Century Fox showed journalists some sneak peek footage from the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes. I got to see some brand new unreleased footage, hear some details from director Matt Reeves, and see the new trailer.

Few franchises have had a more successful or impressive reinvention in recent years as Planet of the Apes. The original series, beloved in its day, petered out by the middle of the 1970s, and the first attempt to revive it, in a 2001 film from director Tim Burton, proved disastrous. But the new prequel series, charting the descent of our human world into a planet full of those damn, dirty apes, has breathed new life into the old property. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a late-summer hit in August 2011, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes outgrossed it three years later. (It made about $30 million more in the U.S. and a whopping $220 million more worldwide.)

It’s been a minute (or several) since we’ve heard anything new from War For the Planet of the Apes, but Matt Reeves’ follow-up to 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes finally has an official synopsis — and just in time for its appearance at New York Comic Con next week. Oh, and by the way, War for the Planet of the Apes is heading to NYCC next week, which means we should be hearing a whole lot more about the exciting new sequel very soon.

We have good news for fans of Matt Reeves, Gary Whitta, Mouse Guard or all of the above: The War For the Planet of the Apes director is teaming up with the former screenwriter of Rogue One to bring the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel series to the big screen. Sadly, Reeves won’t be directing the project himself, but given his experience working with mo-cap on the Apes films, he’ll make for one heck of a producer.

The Next Film from ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Director Matt Reeves Is in the Works

In some film circles, it’s fashionable to dump on studio-made pictures as hollow money-makers, devoid of intrinsic artistic merit and existing only to fatten the pockets of corporate executives heading the companies that finance them. This is an extremely uncharitable and patently unfair stance to take, and nobody proves that more amply than Matt Reeves. (Except for maybe Magic Mike XXL, clearly the greatest American studio film of the millennium.) Reeves has been able to carve out his own corner of the studio system, filling it with innovatively staged creature features (Cloverfield), remakes of foreign genre standouts (Let Me In, a rework of Swedish vampire romance Let the Right One In), and most recently, a blockbuster with more smarts and character than the vast majority of features that slink through neighborhood cineplexes (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ Adds Woody Harrelson as an Evil Human

Good news: War of the Planet of the Apes has added Woody Harrelson to the cast. Bad news: Woody Harrelson will not be playing an ape. Good news: Woody Harrelson will be playing a mysterious character known as “the Colonel,” which means he’ll probably have at least one scene where he fist-fights an ape to the death. After all, movie characters whose names are just military titles do that kind of thing.
