Refresh the entire Apes trilogy with new featurette
20th Century Fox has released a new Apes trilogy featurette in anticipation for War for the Planet of the Apes, featuring a look back at Rise and Dawn as well as a peek at War. Check it out below!
Over the course of three films, Weta Digital has mastered the art of translating human actors to apes. The apes level of sentience has developed throughout each film and so too have Weta Digital’s techniques and toolsets. Developing some of the most advanced techniques in the industry, Weta artists employ these tools to create exceptional CG characters.
In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter in the rebooted take on the enduring science fiction franchise, Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
The film, directed by the returning Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In), also stars Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club, Captain Fantastic), Terry Notary (Kong: Skull Island, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Karin Konoval (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2012).
War for the Planet of the Apes opens nationwide on July 14.
