This new film by Reeves is from a script he wrote with Mark Bomback. Serkis stars alongside Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Terry Notary, Max Lloyd-Jones and Karin Konoval War for the Planet of the Apes arrives in theaters on July 14.
Serkis talked about how “This was not an easy film to make.”
“It really wasn’t. It was emotionally exhausting,” Serkis said to Eurweb. “The level that I had to operate on to play this character in this movie, I think, was probably the most challenging I’ve ever had to do in anything because the stakes are so high, the emotions are so raw.”
Here’s a synopsis: In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel.
