It’s safe to say that Rise of the Planet of the Apes was one of the biggest surprises of the 2011 summer movie season. In addition to a compelling story and great performances, the Weta motion capture technology was a sight to be seen, and Andy Serkis’ brilliant performance of Caesar changed the game in the new technological style of acting.
This summer fans were treated to the follow up, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, helmed by Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves. The global blockbuster smash was met with stellar reviews, and I got the chance to sit down with Reeves, Serkis and actor Toby Kebbell to talk about making the film, telling the powerful story and what we can look forward to from the next installment.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, starring Andy Serkis, Toby Kebbell, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman, is now available on digital and Blu-ray.
