Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

They have horses! While yesterday everyone was flipping out over the news of the logo being revealed (seen above), today we actually have the first photo from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to feature. Director Matt Reeves, who is shooting the film now, tweeted out this first photo of their shoot in a forest. His tag for the photo only states "A New Dawn…" and it shows actor Jason Clarke talking with Andy Serkis in his Caesar mocap outfit riding on a horse. As our very first look at this, it's pretty damn cool, and I hope we see Reeves tweet out more as filming continues. There's no CGI in it yet, but it's worth checking out below.

Here's the first set photo from Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, tweeted out on @mattreevesLA:

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

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 May 23rd, 2014 next summer.

    Ok I'm excited!
  • Franco isn't returning? :(

      Same question? Hoping there'd be some continuation in character relationships. Curious to see if Caesar hates all humans except Franco, or how he'll start viewing people.

      bet u he died in the Plauge

        Hoping the explanation for Franco's absence, is not that simple (like how Thor managed to get to earth after the bridge was destroyed in Avengers).

          Loki says that Odin used black magic
    So cool.

    SHIIIIET! (I mean that in a positive way)

    This is going to be great, the most enjoyment that I got out of Rise (which I like a lot) was the anticipation of what the sequel was going to be. It didn't feel like a reboot, it felt like the prologue to the reboot.
    Kinda looks like that horse is in pain.
  • Schuyler
    I can already imagine the Apes on the horses, this looks great already
      Bow Your Heads! (RIP Michael Clarke Duncan).

    "While yesterday everyone was flipping out over the news of the logo being revealed." Really? Jesus, people need to get a fucking life.
    • Yea that's what I was thinking... we waited to cover this photo today!
  • SkyNet300
    If anybody thought James "can't act" Franco was good in the first don't know what acting is! Lol I hate that talentless hack.
  • SkyNet300
    Jason Clarke rules btw!
      For sure. Hopefully he can break out with this blockbuster.

  • Man I cant wait for this! Loved the first one, still I do wish Franco was coming back.
