War for the Planet of the Apes
is without a doubt one of the most anticipated films of the summer. Matt Reeves’ follow-up to both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes features our hero Caesar (played immaculately by Andy Serkis) in perhaps the darkest chapter of his story, and after Reeves’ work last film, War for the Planet of the Apes is definitely shaping up to be an emotional roller coaster.

Thankfully, for those eager to see the next bits of footage for War for the Planet of the Apes, they may not have to wait so long. According to Trailer Track, the final trailer has been classified and may be attached to 20th Century Fox’s Alien: Covenant.

8 Reasons Matt Reeves Is The Perfect Director For ‘The Batman’
Batman is a special character and he deserves a special director. He’s had a few through his cinematic lifetime but the most recent addition to the pantheon of Batman directors is one that should excite any fan. Matt Reeves will take the helm of the Ben Affleck-led solo Batman film, tentatively titled The Batman, after Affleck himself vacated the chair to focus on his role.
Reeves made his directorial debut in 2008 on the viral-marketed hit Cloverfield, produced by his childhood friend and frequent colleague J.J. Abrams (which has now spawned an anthology franchise) and made a career hopping from beloved property to beloved property. He remade the hit foreign film Let the Right One In as Let Me In in 2010 and was briefly attached to direct The Twilight Zone film before taking the reins of the rebooted Planet of the Apes series with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014. He returned for the third film, War of the Planet of the Apes, which he is currently in post-production on for a July 14 release this summer.
Reeves is an established name, by dint of his relationships and resume, but he is nonetheless an inspired choice to shepherd one of pop culture’s most venerable characters. His movies are often very dramatic, even sensitive, in way that conveys emotional vulnerability, a powerful tool for maintaining audiences’ suspension of disbelief in the face of the fantastic or ridiculous. His habit of remaking or rebooting properties also makes him comfortable with how to balance the old with the new and, best of all, how to fuse both into something that is both highly personal and very accessible.
