Whenever performance capture is involved in making something, it’s cool to see footage of the actors performing their characters with side-by-side comparison of what the finished production looks like.
A new video has been released of just that kind of comparison for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the upcoming sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes. In it you’ll see brief clips of various actors from the movie playing their part, including Andy Serkis, and what it looks like in the finished film.
You can check out the video below.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. 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.
Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in the last film, reprises his role as Caesar. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes also stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Harry Potter film series), Keri Russell (The Americans, Mission Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (The Prince of Persia, Wrath of the Titans, Rock N Rolla), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, ParaNorman), Enrique Murciano (Traffic, Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (The Descendants, Three Kings, 13 Going on 30).
Be sure to check out the trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which hits theaters on July 11th, if you’ve not yet seen it.
