War for the Planet of the Apes is already getting rave reviews (including here) as it concludes a rebooted trilogy of the franchise that dates back to the 1968 classic Planet of the Apes which starred Charlton Heston, all of which originated from a 1963 French novel by Pierre Boulle.
War, directed by Matt Reeves (soon heading into the director’s chair for the DC Comics feature The Batman with Ben Affleck). opens in theaters on July 14th. In preparation, AMC Theaters be playing the concluding chapter in the series after screening both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the previous entries in the rebooted series. Fans can revel in the delicacies of Andy Serkis’ richly detailed motion capture work as Caesar as the three-picture series screens in its entirety.
The entire trilogy will play on the big screen on Wednesday, July 12th starting a 4pm. Check out participating theaters here.
