    I think the modest opening weekend for this final episode can be explained by speculating that millennials can’t appreciate the meme of Earth coming to be populated by intelligent, even erudite, simians. I’m of the age that made me a “millennial” in 1968 when the first “Planet of the Apes” film was released. Roddy McDowall and Charlton Heston, bankable stars, gave us a believable character study ( and plot. We followed all the sequels; “Beneath…”, “Escape….”, “Conquest….”, and “Battle….” And then, of course, there was the TV series. But a long time has elapsed since we became “Ape-Nuts.” And those who weren’t even born when we, like Heston, were shocked (out of our seats) by the Statue of Liberty poking up through the sand probably will find more to digest in the Avengers world of characters with super powers. Cornelius, George Taylor, Nova, Dr. Zira all learned about “Caesar.” We Ape-Nuts finally got to see how the transformation of Earth happened. Tnank you Matt Reeves and all the Producers!
