The Planet of the Apes revival has been light-years better than any of us were prepared for, offering some of the most powerful storytelling we've seen in modern blockbuster cinema. And with Matt Reeves' final installment in the latest trilogy, War for the Planet of the Apes, the story is concluded in the biggest, most beautiful way imaginable.
We're so excited to celebrate this trilogy, and the tremendous films and television series that came before it, with a brand-new issue of Birth.Movies.Death. magazine. And this magazine is GREAT. I truly believe it's one of the best we've ever released, with incredible art and this bananas-great cover by Eric Powell. We've got articles going back to Rod Serling's very first draft of the script adapting Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel and jumping forward to interviews with War for the Planet of the Apes' director Matt Reeves, producer Peter Chernin and with the bold magicians at Weta Digital. We celebrate Reeves, Andy Serkis, Cornelius and Zira, the monkey movies that predated the original Apes, the wonderful merch to come out of these films, the hard science behind the franchise and the VFX that makes it real to us. And we've got a knockout spread of all of the gorgeous Planet of the Apes art that Mondo has released over the years.
We expect this magazine to move fast, so move with it! Pre-order yours online now, or grab a copy along with a ticket to War for the Planet of the Apes and a gorgeous Eric Powell pint glass at the Alamo Drafthouse near you.
And never forget: Apes. Together. Strong.
