Should another Planet Of The Apes be made?

<a data-snax-placeholder="Source" class="snax-figure-source" href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">…1-Of-The_Apes-2017.jpg</a>

I did go see the third movie of ” War For The Planet Of The Apes” series which is purely a fantasy series and not to be taken seriously by us humanoids on Tuesday in a theater.

The question that should be answered by us fans of the franchise is spoiler alert the death of the leader of the ape Caesar should 20th Century Fox should up a stop sign and quit while they are ahead or risk making another Planet Of The Apes movie after the death of Caesar.

My instincts tell me to end the series of the apes movies since in the movies all of mankind are gone pecans, any human who is alive will succumb to the Simian Flu which killed the humans in the second and third movies.

Just my opinion since Hollywood and myself have different views of the entertainment business. As a fan of the late comedian Roberto Gomez Bolanos alias Chespirito when he played the orphan character “The Kid From Number Eight’ he learned from the landlord Mister Belly (Edgar Vivar) that “Revenge is never good because it poisons and kills the soul.”

The idea of Caesar (Andy Serkis) wanting revenge on The Colonel (Woody Harrelson) for rubbing out his family during the movie destroyed what would have been a great motion picture. But otherwise I look at making a fourth Planet Of The Apes movie would be like this.

Having some aliens from another planet who look like humans work with the apes in the next movie since a movie that will have all apes as the featured attraction will turn me off since why tamper with the original Planet Of The Apes movie which came out in 1968?

If I were 20th Century Fox end this series since Caesar passed away and since there no humans left for the apes to deal with, the film would be a bore since any human being who has at least some training in Christianity knows that a planet full of smart apes does not exist.

Oh by the way there is no truth to the rumor that the Little Caesar’s Pizza stores are named in the memory of Caesar the ape who was so smart he made apes of humans in the first movie with his amazing strength and smarts. Okay so it was a Three Stooges joke from the video short “Dizzy Detectives”. Woo! Woo! Woo! Oh wise guy!

  1. You are correct since actor Sylvester Stallone admitted he made the movie “Rocky V” which came out in 1990 due to “greed.” But since he wanted his character Rocky Balboa to go full circle he made “Rocky Balboa” which came out in 2006 after “Rocky V” bombed to give closure to his famous boxing character. There are plans to make another Planet Of The Apes movie since the audiences liked the Caesar trilogy and now it will be his son to continue the series.

  2. Unfortunately, if it’s making money than the studio will figure out a way to do it. I remember that Alien franchise Sigourney Weaver’s character apparently perished at the end of the third installment but because again a hit the studio wanted another film so a plan was devised to say that her character had been cloned, along came another Alien and well we know the rest, but this is an example of stopping while you’re ahead because the fourth movie wasn’t hit and it’s the one that did that franchise in. Still, studios don’t learn that it’s best to stop when a film is hot and not allow it to die an agonizing death.

  3. That is true since Sylvester Stallone had made so many Rocky Balboa movies because the fans of his movies like the stories he shares based on his life through his Rocky Balboa character and others. I mean War For The Planet Of The Apes was even scarier than the first two movies.

  4. Hollywood has long had the idea that if you make millions from Project A then you will repeat the bonanza with Project A+1, A+2, and so on down the line. If you are telling parts of a continuing story – such as the Harry Potter series – then all well and good, even if you are forced to change some of the leading actors in the process. However, the assumption that any sequel – however badly written – will drag in the dollars is often a false one. Surely any sequel has to stand as a great film in its own right to be a success, and not depend on customer loyalty for box office success.

  5. We don’t need another one. There are plenty of good books out there that could be made into movies that haven’t been done before. I’d like to see Dragonriders of Pern, The Stainless Steel Rat and the Deathworld Trilogy turned into movies. There are about 30 Xanth novels also.

    • I agree with you on this matter since at my age of 56 years I am getting burned out with reboots of movies that I saw when I was in grade school. Some new characters are needed from books to see in either television or movies. It worked for PBS Kids heroes Wordgirl and Wild Kratts.

    • The movie was scarier than the first two since Caesar got knocked out again by Red and when the soldier who was going to rub out Caesar meant his end in a very violent end that is shook me out of my seat.

  6. Sorry, no more movies of Planet of the Apes. The whole idea denigrated the grace and dignity of most humans. Legal to show it But the less we know it ( the ape films) the sooner we help the needy and hungry folks around us.

    • Could you imagine Rocky movies with Rocky Balboa either as a boxer or trainer in a movie. It would lose its punch. The death of Caesar in third movie should end the series since it would not be fun for a ape movie without humans to battle.
