War For The Planet Of The Apes Concept Art & Plot Details Confirm Appearance by Nova

22 December 2016 8:37 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director Matt Reeves may be taking the Planet of the Apes franchise in a new direction with War for the Planet of the Apes, but the upcoming sequel has now been confirmed to feature a character familiar to fans of 1968's Planet of the Apes.

New concept art unveiled by EW features the gorilla Luca (Michael Adamthwaite) sharing a tender moment with a mute girl known as Nova (Amiah Miller), who EW reveals is the same character portrayed by Linda Harrison in the '68 film.

It's not yet known if Nova's destiny will still be on track to meet astronaut Taylor (played by Charlton Heston in the original Planet of the Apes movie), or if she'll instead take a different path in the new films, but as Reeves told EW, she'll play a key role in Caesar's (Andy Serkis) inner turmoil:

Apes and humans face off in the first trailer for Fox’s “War for the Planet of the Apes” — the eighth film in the franchise.

“I did not start this war,” intones Andy Serkis in an ominous voiceover as the ape leader Caesar. “I offered you peace. I showed you mercy but now you are trying to finish us off.”

Human and ape armies then begin battling each other amid wintry landscapes with Woody Harrelson’s new Colonel character asserting, “We created you and nature has been punishing us ever since.”

Deadpool 2 Loses Director Over Creative Differences with Ryan Reynolds

22 October 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One thing is for certain. Deadpool 2 won't be the same kind of movie as Deadpool, as the sequel has lost a key ingredient in the first movie's success. Director Tim Miller has exited the project. While Ryan Reynolds is certainly the mouthpiece for the Merc with the Mouth, Deadpool's success was built on the backs of four individuals over the course of ten years. And it was a truly collaborative effort between Reynolds, Miller and the two screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The next one won't be that.

The split came after creative differences between Tim Miller and star/producer Ryan Reynolds began to rise during preproduction. Though it was widely reported that Tim Miller was coming back to helm Deadpool 2, the director never officially signed onto the movie. He had been helping to develop the script, and it certainly seemed as though he would be back. »

Stunning Teaser For War For The Planet Of The Apes Reveals Caesar

6 October 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We rarely use the term ‘teaser’ and ‘artistry’ in the same breath, but the latest promotional footage for War For The Planet Of The Apes certainly warrants it. Organically building in menace and a sense of desperation, the brief snippet graciously and gradually reveals the iconic visage of Caesar. Though he is silent in appearance, the beautifully rendered imagery is overlaid with the character’s creepy dialogue from his previous franchise appearance.

From what we know so far, the third chapter in the rebooted series sees Caesar and his crew forced into conflict with the humans as the two fight in “an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.” Sounds like exciting stuff, and given that the first two instalments were excellent across the board, we certainly have high hopes for this one as well.
