In the first film, which was released in 1968, there was indeed a mute girl character named Nova (played by Linda Harrison). Who live with the monkeys.
And, as a result, with the addition of a few new characters, after two weeks of global airing, War for the Planet of the Apes received a very positive response from critics. In fact, many call this film one of the best films of 2017.
In addition, this third film is also considered the closing of the most perfect trilogy ever made. Director Matt Reeves is considered successful in presenting a strong story. Which is accompanied by stunning action scenes. In addition, his slick musical composition, which was worked on by the maestro Michael Giacchino, will also make the audience goosebumps.
However, among the positive things in this film, the one that gets the most praise is the performance of Andy Serkis as Caesar. With the help of digital technology and sophisticated cameras, Serkis is able to show perfect acting as an intelligent ape. Therefore, it’s no wonder, there are those who are championing him to win the Oscar next year!
Oh yes. Although War for the Planet of the Apes is touted as the ending of the Monkey Planet trilogy, that doesn’t mean the franchise will end. Because, reportedly, 20th Century Fox has prepared a fourth film. Which, the plan, will be released in 2020.
When interviewed by the media, Andy Serkis did indicate that the Planet of the Apes story would continue. However, perhaps, the director is no longer Matt Reeves. Because, he already has a new project: Working on Ben Affleck’s The Batman film. Therefore, let’s first enjoy his epic work in this latest film. Before he refines the Bat-Man.
As a result, due to the less positive criticism, at the box office, Valerian was out of breath. After running for almost two weeks, the independent film, which is also the most expensive European production in history, was only able to collect revenue of USD 52 million. Still very far from the jumbo budget. Those above USD 200 million.
After being released for the first time in 2010, Despicable Me, which was produced by Illumination Entertainment, immediately attracted the attention of moviemania. The film whose story was written by Sergio Pablos was later turned into one of the most successful animated film franchises in history.
In the last seven years, at least, there have been four feature films and ten Despicable Me short films released. The latest one is Despicable Me 3. Which will start showing in cinemas this Wednesday (12/7).
Despicable Me 3 airing here is a little late. In North America, the film that tells the adventures of Gru and his minions has already been released. To be precise, since the end of last June.
The story of Despicable Me 3 itself is still a continuation of the two previous films: Despicable Me (2010) and Despicable Me 2 (2013). Felonious Gru, whose voice is voiced by Steve Carell, is still the main character.
