No, like how in Rise of the Planet of the Apes had humans test drugs intended for humans on apes. Apes could test drugs intended for Apes on humans.

Escape from the Planet of the Apes kind of did something like that. It's basically the first film again, but this time the apes are the ones who arrive in a society where humans are in charge. They actually become media darlings for the first half before everything goes to hell.

As an ardent fan of the first two, I'm intrigued to see where they go with this.

They've done well. It's not often a movie series can keep up quality for two movies.

If they don't mess up in the second, then it's usually the third where things go bad.

Can they break that trend? War Of The Planet Of The Apes will show us.

So, first we had humans screwing things up, then we had Apes messing up (mostly through Koba, who is arguably a product of humanity's screw ups), so I wonder how things will go this time.

Read this post for my theory

Both. Both mess up this time.

Humans fuck up in waging the war, and start killing each other. Humans ask Apes for peace, one ape (Stupid fucking Koba!) fucks everything up and humans all die in the ensuing end of the war.

So, what, now it's like "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" but with a bunch of militant humans being the intolerant faction?

[up] The setting alone makes it far from what happened at the end of Rise. The military attack that was at the climax of the first movie will look like a skirmish compared to the setup War will portray, I assume.

As for the talk about Koba possibly returning for the sequel, so far, his actor hasn't been listed in the cast (yet), but I can definitely imagine Koba's argument of inherently distrusting humans conflicting with Caesar's past experiences of human kindness becoming the pivotal point of Caesar's arc, namely during his darkest hour. It's been said his battle with Koba in Dawn would haunt him in interviews in this movie, and and the sypnosis for War does mention Caesar wrestling with his "darker instincts".

I adored Rise, and Dawn was what I felt was one of the best films of its year, alongside The Lego Movie. So I'm really hoping War averts sequelitis and we have an incredible trilogy of this arc of Planet of the Apes films.

has a clue, but it's usually not the correct one 0.55% of the time

Yeah, I meant "Dawn". I haven't seen them so I get them kind of mixed up XD

I've seen them and I still get the names mixed up. Whose idea was it to use basically interchangeable words for the first two movies?

Nevertheless, you must persist.

Either way it does seem like this guy could be one of the last barriers to the two races actually coming to terms, considering the end of the trailer showed that orangutan and some humans fighting against that colonel guy's army together.

I have a feeling the movie might avert a downer ending like the last two movies (the virus spreading and the beginning of a war between Humans and Apes) and might end with a hopeful note. Maybe like the Apes do rule the world but unlike the original movies where humans become slaves, the humans are treated well and look to the Apes as their saviors who help them rebuild the world or humans and apes end their animosity and learn to live together peacefully.

Well if the only surviving humans now are those that are immune to the virus it may turn out that way; the apes keep to the woods while the humans rebuild the cities, and both sides co-exist.

I'm curious if other, natural apes, all over the world were uplifted by the virus.

[up][up] While it sucked, the last of the original Apes movies ended with both sides finally living in peace. If this is the last Ape movie, then maybe we can finally get that Bittersweet Ending.

So what do you guys think is up with that little girl Caesar and Maurice are seen with throughout the trailer? She's obviously important. Maybe she's related to the one of the human characters and Caesar's hoping for one final chance at peace by returning her to her family?

I would imagine something like that. Caesar obviously doesn't like having to bring her back, though.

Shouldn't this thread's title be changed since the film's title is War for the Planet of the Apes?
