While some may be pining for what lies ahead with Matt Reeves’s involvement in the future of Batman, the director’s current run with Twentieth Century Fox’s latest July 14 release, War For The Planet Of The Apes. The studio is now priming tickets for a triple feature launching on July 12 in exclusive RealD 3D presentation that spans all three films: Rupert Wyatt’s 2011 action adventure, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, and Reeves’s Dawn (2014) and War installments.
Motion capture pioneering actor Andy Serkis is central to the trilogy as Caesar, the subject of an experiment gone haywire initially meant as a cure for Alzheimer’s disease that has spawned legions of apes becoming self-aware and declaring their own liberation and independence from humans, ensuing in an all-out war to determine the longevity of either species. Comprising the human cast of the trilogy are James Franco, Frieda Pinto and David Oyelowo starred in the first film with James Clarke, Gary Oldman and Keri Russell in the second, and Woody Harrelson and Amiah Miller in the third; Serkis is joined principally by Karin Konoval, Christopher Gordon and Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer and Terry Notary among those in the ape roster.
To celebrate the epic final showdown between apes and humans in the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, Twentieth Century Fox Film will give audiences a chance to experience a special Planet of the Apes triple feature on Wednesday, July 12th. For one price, Planet of the Apes fans will be able to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2D, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 3D, and be among the first to see the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes in 3D. An exclusive commemorative item with artwork by Shepard Fairey in collaboration with Studio Number One will be available to all guests who attend the Planet of the Apes triple feature in RealD 3D, while supplies last.
