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.

My Favorite Scene: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) “Monkey See; Monkey Shoot”

Every hero needs a villain.  The strength of the hero is shown in the vileness of the villain he has to overcome.  One of the reasons Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was twice as good as Rise of Planet of the Apes was that Caesar had his very own Brutus in Toby Kebbell’s Koba.

Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) *Minor Spoilers*

Caesar, Andy Serkis, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes In a summer that has provided more disappointments  than any in recent memory, there’s a kind of twisted logic behind the best movie of the summer being one from which I expected nothing at all.  That’s right.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes isn’t just a good sequel or a good entry in the series.  It’s a great film that is mandatory viewing for film fans this summer.

The Highest Grossing Movie Franchises of All-Time

James Bond, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jason Bourne, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tolkien Saga, Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Spider-Man, Indiana Jones, Twilight, Jaws, Rocky, Star Trek, Jurassic Park, Transformers, Aliens, Predator, Mission Impossible, Fast and the Furious, X-Men, Matrix, Men in Black, Terminator, Die Hard, Back to the Future, Narnia, Godfather, The Mummy, Lethal Weapon, Planet of the Apes, Rambo

The folks at BuzzFeed have put together a fascinating graphic on just which of the franchises in the franchise-mad cinematic world in which we live, have made the most money. With more films than any other franchise in history, James Bond being atop the list is no surprise. However, Star Trek is second with 12 films and is far down the list in Rocky territory. Star Wars should blow past Bond when the future film cycle starts, but look how high the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just one film into Phase 2. Disney may just have themselves the two highest-grossing franchises of all-time five years from now.
