They're are definitely reboots to the films Beneath, Escape, Conquest, and Battle so in my opinion the recent films are retconning the films I've just mention except the original. If a new trilogy happens it may involve nuclear war which would connect it futher to the original.

So to me the recent films are both reboots and prequels but what do you think?
