Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is easily one of my very favorite blockbusters of the past couple decades (if not ever). It’s an emotional powerhouse and an incredibly nuanced sci-fi epic. More films would do well to study Dawn and its ability to deliver on blockbuster spectacle while still retaining all the depth and dimension of a great, smaller-scale drama. In short: it’s a masterpiece.So you can imagine how excited I am now that new promotional material for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third of the new Apes films written and directed by Dawn helmer Matt Reeves, is hitting the Internet. While I’ll really only be satiated by a full-blown trailer release, the marketing team for the film has released an atmospheric little mini-teaser for the fans to munch on until we can see some real footage.
