Film: Fox wants an Oscar for War for the Planet of Apes

There were several articles about this recently.

It won’t happen.

Can a summer blockbuster that is both financially and critically successful score some Gold come Oscar season? Absolutely, and it has happened before.

Fox can pour some money and resources into this, but it’ll be to no avail simply because War for the Planet of the Apes wasn’t good enough. Hell, it may not even be considered the most critically-acclaimed blockbuster of 2017.

It will also always invite comparisons to its vastly superior predecessor. Having “Dawn” to compare it to only highlights the flaws of “War.”

Would absolutely love for Serkis to get some love, but we have never lived in a just world.
