All-Around War

Two things.  One: the Planet of the Apes reboot of the last few years has been one of the best things to happen to summer cinema.  What could’ve been paint-by-number has been a creative and enjoyable (and saddening) adventure.

Two: the more trailers you get for a movie, the less there is to look forward to.  Usually.  Sometimes a slow, deliberate roll-out works really well.  We might get that with War for the Planet of the Apes.  The latest trailer, which dropped yesterday, pushes the assumed narrative in a direction I wasn’t expecting at all.  And I’m kind of glad for the hint.  This series has built its stakes quite well.
