Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Following last year's teaser for the anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we're due for a new look at the summer release. And while we're not sure when the new trailer will hit (though X-Men: Days of Future Past would be a good time to debut a new trailer), we have some new behind the scenes photos showing Andy Serkis and Toby Kebbell in the motion capture suits used to create their ape performances as a guide for visual effects artists. There's another shot of Serkis on horseback speaking with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell, but the more interesting shots have the ape actors holding big guns. Look!

Here's some production photos from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from Empire:

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. Besides Serkis, the apes cast includes Judy Greer as Cornelia & Toby Kebbell as Koba. 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 script written by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver. 20th Century Fox has Dawn of the Planet of the Apes scheduled for 3D release on July 11th this summer.

It must feel silly to wear pajamas with cotten balls all over and then jump around like an ape. Hats off to those actors. Side note I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For the money they get paid I'm sure they'd dress up as pink chickens.

It must be amazing to be involved in making a movie like this. The teaser trailer got me very excited.

An ape is going to learn how to use a sniper rifle? Something that takes years of practice of use? He better use his feet at least once to shoot some one.

First of all, it's been 10 years between this movie and the last one, second, a sniper rifle is pretty easy to learn to use. You're being ridiculous just for the sake of it.

I love Jason Clarke. Crazy to think he's gonna play John Connor in T5.
