War for the Planet of the Apes Plot Details Sound Awesome
The third installment in Fox's surprisingly good Planet of the Apes reboot prequel series is on the way, and now the first plot details for War for the Planet of the Apes have been unveiled ahead of the footage premiering at New York Comic Con on October 6. Not surprisingly, it sounds like it's going to be pretty intense. Here's the official synopsis:
Opening quote
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.
Closing quote

It should be a blast to watch Caesar embrace his destiny. We know the apes win the war, otherwise there would be no Planet of the Apes franchise, but seeing what happens with Caesar and how he brings that about should be quite the journey. At the end of the previous film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar reluctantly prepared the apes for a war with the humans that he never wanted. But with the Colonel, played by Woody Harrelson in what's sure to be a scene-stealing role, taking over as the main villain, it seems Caesar will be driven to become more violent than he ever wanted to be.
