If you can't wait for War for the Planet of the Apes, you better not miss this Sunday's all-new episode of The Walking Dead. Director Matt Reeves has just dropped the official logo for the third chapter in the Apes prequel series. And it comes with news that a special War for the Planet of the Apes announcement will happen Sunday night. Here's what he had to say on his official Twitter
"And something else begins... Tune in to @WalkingDead_AMC Sunday night for a special #WarForTheApes announcement..."
We're still a little less than two years away from seeing War for the Planet of the Apes, when it premieres in theaters summer 2017. So it's not likely that we'll get to see the first trailer. Shooting just began almost exactly a month ago, with Matt Reeves revealing the first set photo on October 18th. At this time, it's hard to even »
Reeves is directing from a script he co-wrote with Mark Bomback, and he dropped the movie's official logo in a tweet a few hours ago. He also suggests that you tune in to this Sunday's episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" for a special announcement.
As the film isn't due to open until July 14th 2017, it certainly won't be the first trailer - we're a good year away from that yet. Instead, it will likely be a featurette of some kind.
Filming on the project bagan a month ago and in this entry, a fragile peace has been achieved between the humans and Caesar's growing nation of genetically evolved apes.

Last year’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes was excellent but if there was one thing it didn’t seem to get a handle on, it was giving Judy Greer enough to do as Caesar’s wife Cornelia. That should now be rectified, as Greer will be back in performance-capture gear and on simian duty for follow-up War For The Planet Of The Apes.As was heralded by pictorial evidence, director Matt Reeves has started shooting the new film, working once again with writer Mark Bomback. Details are sketchy about what the film will cover, although if you watched Dawn you know that (spoiler alert) after a conflict between the human survivors of the virus and Caesar’s simian forces, a sort of truce was reached, one that was threatened by the coming of human reinforcements from outside San Francisco. Back on the ape side this time out are Andy Serkis as Caesar, »

In the image, we can see an actor wearing a motion-capture suit as they stand in for one of the apes gesturing to another actor on horseback alone on a beach.
Considering the image, the cryptic caption and the film's new title of War for the Planet of the Apes - changed from War of the Planet of the Apes - it looks like the battle between man and ape is about to reach its breaking point.
War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves revealed over the weekend that production has begun on his sequel to last year's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with the filmmaker posting the first photo from the set.

The ever-likable and versatile actor Steve Zahn (above in A Perfect Getaway) has joined the cast of War for the Planet of the Apes. Zahn will play a new ape character, according to Deadline, though no details have been revealed. The secrecy is part and parcel of the project, which has been written by Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback, and will be directed by Reeves, who guided the previous installment, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, to great success, including box office returns that exceeded $700 million worldwide. Dawn left uncertain the future of humanity, as men battled with apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis), with greater warfare looming in the days ahead. Since 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the relaunch of the series has gained momentum, though it makes some...

Just one month after Woody Harrelson came aboard to play the human villain in War for the Planet of the Apes, 20th Century Fox's sequel has added a brand new ape as well. The Wrap reports that Steve Zahn has signed on to play an unidentified ape in the sequel, but it isn't known how his primate character fits into the sequel's story. It's possible that he has some sort of connection with the ape leader, Caesar, portrayed by Andy Serkis, but we don't know for certain.
We also reported in August that Gabriel Chavarria (Lowriders) is being eyed for one of two main human roles in War for the Planet of the Apes, whose character was compared to James Franco's Will Rodman in 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. No plot details have been released yet, but the title is certainly quite revealing, teasing an all-out »
