20th Century Fox has recently shared the hair-raising performance capture behind the upcoming revolutionary action thriller “Dawn of The Planet of The Apes,” where Caesar, a CGI-created ape introduced in the previously released “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is now an older, wiser and more troubled character.
Performance captured by Andy Serkis, Caesar is now the leader of the more dominant species, now a ‘husband’ and father too, he is bent on protecting his family against the humans.
“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” takes place 10 years after in the wake of the Simian flu which has wiped out most of mankind and the apes have evolved to be the stronger species.
The primates in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” led by Caesar (Andy Serkis) step up on nature’s chain when a virus wipes out most of humankind. Also starring in the film are Gary Oldman with Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Kirk Acevedo, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Enrique Murciano who play survivors and are trying to prevent the apes from fully inheriting the Earth.
