This year, 20th Century Fox has two blockbuster sequels incoming in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and the studio is wasting little time in finalising its plans for the next instalments of both series.
We already know that X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release in May 2016, and now Fox has confirmed that the as-yet-untitled third Planet of the Apes movie will hit cinemas on July 29th, 2016. As previously revealed, Matt Reeves has signed on to direct, while he'll also cowrite the screenplay for the simian sequel with Mark Bomback (The Wolverine).
Of course, there's still the small matter of the second movie, which is set for release on July 11th this year with Reeves directing a cast that includes the returning Andy Serkis alongside Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell »
