War For The Planet Of The Apes FIRST reactions: 'Magnificent' 'Best film of the summer'

Excited fans are tweeting abourt early screenings and the advance word is incredible.

The film isn't out in US cinemas until July 14 but the lucky few who have seen it already are going ape, or even, dare we say, bananas.

Reviews are strictly embargoes but the cheeky folk have already posted their reactions online including a senior editor at Rotten Tomatoes.

Scott Mantz‏ from Access Hollywood wrote in a flurry of capital letters:" It's OFFICIAL! #WarForThePlanetOfTheApes is AMAZING! Deep, dark, EPIC! RISE + DAWN + WAR = one of the BEST MOVIE TRILOGIES EVER! #HailCaesar.

"The BEST movie of the summer is HERE! #WarForThePlanetOfTheApes is a LANDMARK TRIUMPH! Gripping, intense, powerful, moving, MAGNIFICENT!"

The movie, which stars British actor Andy Serkis as the heroic ape Caesar, is picking up universal acclaim.

Rotten Tomatoes Senior Editor Grae Drake added her praise.

She wrote: "I just had the pleasure of seeing #WarForThePlanet of the Apes. Jesus, you guys. Start hydrating now, you're going to need it. Wow.

"I’m dumbstruck by what they continue to accomplish. If you thought you had no more feels left after the Wolverine Movie, you are mistaken."

There has also been direct praise for the director Matt Reeves who also directed 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Harry Knowles wrote: "War For The Planet Of The Apes is magical. Apes on horseback in blowing snow, nuanced acting by Apes & Humans! Matt Reeves rules!"

This will also reassure DC fans since it bodes well for Reeves' next project, the troubled Batman standalone movie starring Ben Affleck.
