War for the Planet of the Apes Blu Ray Special Features and Release Date

 

War for the Planet of the Apes

Sadly, with July as packed as it was, War for the Planet of the Apes seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle, doing much worse than Dawn for the Planet of the Apes or its July blockbuster brethren: Dunkirk and Spider-Man.  This was an exceptional film (read my review here), and if you missed it in the theaters, it looks like the blu ray has been packed with goodies.  Check out one of the best films of 2017, and the cap one one of the best science fiction trilogies of all-time.  For full details on specs, read Fox’s press release below.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray3D Blu-ray, and Blu-ray director Matt Reeves’ blockbuster War for the Planet of the Apes (2017), starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer, and Karin Konoval. The three releases will be available for purchase on October 24.

  1. Yeah, I missed it. I’m a part of the problem. I’m looking forward to it, though. Something weird has happened: over the course of the past few years, I have become a huge fan of the entire franchise, including the original five films. They’re not objectively good (no, they are not) but they’ve got a certain charm, they are refreshingly fatalistic and downbeat, and as Tim Burton pointed out when he was making his weird, whimsical version (which is only a “disaster” because people keep SAYING that) there is a wonderful circularity to them. They’re certainly more adventurous and experimental than the current trilogy, even though this trilogy is miles better. And they inspired that Simpsons song…
