Yes, it is possible to make a summer blockbuster filled with drama and heart and yeah, even some super cool action. Matt Reeves has it down as evidenced by his two amazing films in the “Planet of the Apes” series.
In this return visit to “Happy Sad Confused,” Reeves goes deep on his love for the franchise, where it goes next after “War for the Planet of the Apes,” and whether he thinks we’ll ever see a performance capture role earn some awards attention.
Plus, Josh and Matt go back to his amazing beginnings, befriending J.J. Abrams as a kid, how he got the first “Star Wars” bootleg ever, and how his feature film career took a backseat to a little show called “Felicity” for a while.
And of course Josh probes Matt about his upcoming film, the next installment in the Batman franchise, and why you shouldn’t believe all those casting rumors just yet.
