Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Featurette: Behind Motion Capture Magic

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Ever wondered what the actors, like the astounding Andy Serkis, are like on the set that produce the characters that we marvel at -- like in the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes?

Fox has released a featurette that shows Serkis and many of his mo-cap co-stars as they perform on the set in Matthew Vaughn’s follow-up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes that also stars Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell.

It’s truly a fascinating look at how talented these actors really are, and it has us wondering how long it will be before Serkis gets an Oscar nomination.

Judging by what we’ve seen from the 25-plus minutes of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes footage, now is the time for Serkis to get his first Oscar nod. 

Look for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in theaters July 11. And is it us, or is Michael Giacchino's score in the above clip to die for?!

And watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes online to see how this whole world got started!
