Trailer Time: War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer #1 (2017) *Caesar’s Coming, Humans!*

It is raining Summer 2017 movie trailers this week.  In case you thought there wasn’t enough awesome coming in the spring, we’ve got a lot more to look forward to including the third movie in the revived Apes series.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was so much better than Rise of the Planet of the Apes it was like an exponential explosion, and I still maintain that Andy Serkis deserved an Oscar nomination.  He’s invented a completely new way of acting for modern F/X that has allowed them to serve the story in a whole new way.  Dawn left us in a very dire place and I’ve been waiting to see Caesar and company again.  Read the plot synopsis and get ready to actually have movies in the summer be good outside of May for the first time in years.

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. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

Trailer Time: Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer & International Trailer #1 (2017) *Spidey’s Back!!!*

 

There were so many good things about Civil War, but arguably the best is that Tom Holland cleared out all of the baggage from the SONY years and the Maguire and Garfield failed experiments.  To me, Holland already is the best Spider-Man we’ve ever had, and I went from completely not caring to ever see another Spidey movie pre-Civil War, to counting the days until we get a full movie of Peter Parker in high school, NO ORIGIN STORY, Michael Keaton as the Vulture and more of the great mentor/mentee/your-aunt-is-unreasonably-hot relationship between Peter and Tony Stark.  Marvel dropped not only the first domestic trailer, but the the first international trailer as well, so what better way to TGIF than to take your first look at the second of three Marvel films we’ll get in 2017 (Thor: Ragnarok will come later in November).  Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to swing into theaters on July 7, 2017, and Coming Soon has a plot synopsis below.

Spider-Man Homecoming, Spider-Man, Vulture

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will swing into theaters on July 7, 2017.
