Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has released a behind-the-scenes featurette that truly paints a picture of a film with a massive scope, but one that never loses focus on its heart.
Director Matt Reeves, as well as stars Gary Oldman and Andy Serkis (back as Caesar!), talk about how the real-life set gave the actors an inspirational feel that what they were working on was something truly special.
Reeves also talks about filming in 3D and on location and how difficult it was, yet how it paid off, to put audiences firmly in the seat of this world where apes rule the day.
Check out the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer and you'll see how masterfully they crafted this world. It's also easy to see from the above featurette why this film is one of our must-sees of summer.
