Once More for the Planet of the Apes

We’re a couple of weeks into the summer movie season.  Guardians Volume 2 was good, with a heavier ending than I had anticipated and that worked well.  Last weekend saw the release of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which was at its best when the director’s hand was heaviest (only a handful of almost-brilliant scenes, alas).  Perhaps the movie I am looking forward to most, though, is the third entry in the Planet of the Apes reboot.  Here’s the final trailer, which dropped earlier today.

The visuals are stunning.  The storytelling of the first two movies was surprisingly good.  As long as it doesn’t end on a heavy-handed note, we could have one of the most successful franchise reboots possible.  Let’s hope it happens.
