I enjoyed the Tim Burton remake a few years ago, but I don't think there's a lot more to mine from this franchise.
This looks more like a re-imagining of the 3rd and 4th film in the series. It would probably be the second most interesting section of the Apes series to modern audiences, since the spectre of nuclear war doesn't loom nearly as large as it did in the 60s.

Of course, the original Apes series was an allegory for the hot-button issues of that time. It would probably be off-topic for this forum to discuss what allegorical references there are in this new film.
