First Look: Caesar in War Paint from 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'
The war has begun. This is already one of my most anticipated movies of 2014 and we've barely seen much from it since they only started shooting a few weeks ago. Fox has released the very first rendered photo of Caesar, played once again by Andy Serkis, from the sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes directed by Matt Reeves. They brought a tease of the movie to Comic-Con and showed us some footage, which ended with this shot seen below. It shows Caesar holding up his hand, ready to attack with a pack of apes behind him. As soon as he drops his arm, they all leap and it cuts. Perfect tease. Love the war paint, he looks pissed.
Our first look at the new Caesar in Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, found in full via Collider:
Here's the current synopsis available: A group of scientists in San Francisco struggle to stay alive in the aftermath of a plague that is wiping out humanity, while Caesar tries to maintain dominance over his community of intelligent apes. Besides Clarke, the cast includes Judy Greer as Cornelia, plus Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rupert Wyatt's revival of the sci-fi franchise Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Directing is Matt Reeves, of Let Me In and Cloverfield previously, from a screenplay written by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. 20th Century Fox has Dawn of the Planet of the Apes scheduled for release on July 18th, 2014 next summer.
