War for the Plant of the Apes gets China release date

16 August 2017 9:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

War for the Planet of the Apes has landed a September China release date.

The latest Apes movie has gone down well with fans and critics alike, and has managed to bring in $313.9 million from the territories it has so far been released in.

Of course, China is a huge market in today’s movie economy, being second only to the Us. So the Matt Reeves film will be pleased to finally have its release date for this lucrative part of the world, arriving to Chinese cinemas on September 15.

This date comes about two months after its Us domestic bow, where it has so far earned $137.6 million, and about three weeks after China’s summer blackout period which bars Hollywood movies from being shown.

War for the Planet of the Apes will come at the end of a deluge of big western titles hitting China, including: Cars 3, Baby Driver, »

Venice: New Films by George Clooney, Guillermo Del Toro, Stephen Frears Expected to World Premiere (Exclusive)

21 July 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – George Clooney’s “Suburbicon,” Guillermo Del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Stephen Frears’ “Victoria and Abdul,” and Paolo Virzi’s “Ella and John,” starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, are among the titles strongly tipped to world premiere at the upcoming 74th Venice Film Festival.

Also expected to make their worldwide bows on the Lido are Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed,” Andrew Haigh’s “Lean on Pete,” and Lucrecia Martel’s “Zama.”

Less than a week before the official announcement, the buzz on the Venice lineup remains somewhat muted, though some locked-in titles have surfaced, including Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” which will open the fest. There’s also certainty over the absence of some titles – especially “Blade Runner 2049” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Mother!”, both high-profile movies that had been considered as possibilities.

Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, and Oscar Isaac, looks set to be the second Paramount picture to launch from »

150 Words on The Beguiled, The Big Sick, and Planet of the Apes

19 July 2017 7:19 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Three movies I didn't review when they were brand spanking new but opinions don't have expiration dates so why not share 'em, anyway? 150 words on each because you're busy and I'm busy, too. 

War for the Planet of the Apes

The freshest character in War for... is named  “Bad Ape.”  But really, who’s good? The final installment of the Apes reboot is, in essence, a war picture which means everyone is compromised. Yes, even noble Caesar (Andy Serkis) is tempted to do the wrong thing repeatedly. Bad Ape (Steve Zahn) gives the movie its only moments of levity but even those are pitiable, like the abused creature himself. The new film isn’t “fun” at all but proves a fitting capper to a surprisingly meaty trilogy. It’s a danger to interpret all current cinema in light of the apocalyptic choices of the Us electorate of late but boy »

Synopsis:

After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.

The conclusion to a trilogy can be a tough thing to pull off, but Matt Reeves succeeds in making War for the Planet of the Apes a satisfying end to the rebooted franchise with a stellar performance from Andy Serkis as the ape leader Caesar.

The best thing about the film is Andy Serkis. He delivers an emotional performance from start to finish, giving his all as Caesar. The most impressive thing about his performance isn’t how he delivers his lines, but the way he uses his »

Steve Zahn on ‘War for the Planet of the Apes': ‘Bad Ape Is the Hardest Acting Job I’ve Ever Done’

18 July 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Warning: This interview contains mild spoilers from “War for the Planet of the Apes.”) In one respect, Steve Zahn’s experience performing as the show-stealing Bad Ape in “War for the Planet of the Apes” is rather similar to the situation his innocent, silly character finds himself in. Much like how Bad Ape finds himself joining a team of apes who have been through hell and back together, Zahn was the newcomer to a team of actors who, starting with “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” six years ago, have become a tight-knit team. Combining their talents with motion capture. »

16 July 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

War for the Planet of the Apes” is officially the box office champ, during a weekend that demands a close look.

Fox and Chernin Entertainment’s latest “Apes” movie is coming in on the low end of expectations with $56.5 million from 4,022 locations. It was pegged at $60 million-$65 million earlier in the week, but is ending up about the same as 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which kicked off the modern trilogy with $54.8 million during its opening weekend. 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” was a bigger hit with a $72.6 million domestic opening, when it hit theaters against the third weekend of “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

War for the Planet of the Apes review – smart simian showdown

16 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Motion-capture apes are the stars of the thrilling third prequel, a psychological western turned war movie

“Humans get sick, apes get smart, humans kill apes.” This is how Steve Zahn’s Bad Ape summarises the previous Planet of the Apes reboots. In the third of the Apes prequels (and director Matt Reeves’s second film in the series), the apes are out for revenge, led by a grizzled Caesar (Andy Serkis), whose driving “hate” is stoked by the death of his son at the hands of violent humans. Flanked by his second-in-command, gentle orang-utan Maurice (Karin Konoval), and two other apes, Caesar and co ride on horseback (an image I found beautiful, evocative and bizarre) across beaches, fields and snow-capped mountains to the prison camp where Woody Harrelson’s Colonel has rounded up the remaining apes to build a Trumpian “wall”.

Along the way they pick up a mute child (Amiah Miller) and Bad Ape, »

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’: DeRay Mckesson and Whoopi Goldberg Respond to Blue Vest Controversy

15 July 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

War for the Planet of the Apes” just opened to strong box-office returns and highly positive reviews, but its arrival in theaters hasn’t been entirely controversy-free. A number of people who watched the trailer noticed that Bad Ape (voiced by Steve Zahn) wears a blue vest similar to that of civil-rights activist DeRay Mckesson, leading some to wonder about the film’s racial politics.

DeRay was among them — “Given the history of rendering black people as apes, I’m offended & appalled by the lack of consciousness in Hollywood,” he tweeted on Monday — but it appears to have been a misunderstanding. The original “Apes” franchise featured a number of vest-wearing apes, and Bad Ape’s wardrobe is apparently intended as an homage to the earlier films; DeRay, one of Black Lives Matter’s most prominent voices, has since »
