Heads Up! Future Films: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

The apes are on their way back!  Part two of the latest Planet Of The Apes franchise opens next month and shows every sign of being the best of the lot.

A packed screening room of journalists – including Yours Truly! – recently had a sneak preview of some footage from the forthcoming Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.  Even better, it was hosted by the master of motion capture acting, Andy Serkis, who reprises his role of Caesar in the film. planet-of-the-apes-3-director-matt-reeves

Now you can see some of that footage, as well as glimpses of the making of the film.   And Serkis, together with Evolutionary Psychologist Carole Jahme, and Volker Sommer, Professor of Primatology at the University College London, gives more insights into the thinking behind the story and the characters.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes finds Caesar still at the helm, but now his growing band of genetically evolved apes is threatened by a group of humans who have survived a devastating virus, blamed on the apes, from a decade ago.  They reach a peace of sorts, but it’s not long before the two sides find themselves on the brink of war ……

The film opens around the UK on Thursday, 17 July.  Its certificate hasn’t been confirmed so far, but get that date in your diary.  This could be one of the biggest and best of the summer blockbusters.
