Movie Fanatic had the pleasure of heading over to the 20th Century Fox lot and we witnessed over 20 minutes of footage from the upcoming blockbuster in the making Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
The footage was introduced by Andy Serkis, who is back in the mo-cap suit as Caesar, leader of the apes who emerged as such at the conclusion of the last film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
So, check out the 9 things we learned from the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes presentation!
It Takes Place 10 Years After Rise
The film takes place 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And a lot has happened to say the least.
The Apes Think all Humans are Dead
The apes, led by Caesar, have not seen a human in years and believe that the virus spawned in the last film has completely wiped them out. When one accidentally walks through their camp, trouble starts.
Gary Oldman Spouts Mistruths
Gary Oldman is the leader of the human survivors. And he has turned the humans against the apes because he's telling them that the simians are responsible for the virus. We all know they're not!
Jason Clarke & Keri Russell Think "We Can All Get Along"
Clarke and Russell portray a survival couple who believe, based on what they've seen, that humans and apes can live side by side.
Director Matt Reeves Pushes the Envelope
Andy Serkis told us that Reeves has taken the mo-cap technology and brought it on location. That has never been done before.
There Is Much Action, Yes, But Movie Is About Family
One thing that struck us immensely is how the footage showed off how much the film has heart. Whether the human family or ape family, the community that binds us reigns supreme in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
