Fox and director Matt Reeves have released the first trailer for the NATIVE 3D production DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. It's definitely looking intense and we haven't yet begun to see anything substantial yet!
As we've just posted, DAWN is a native 3D production using the rigs and services of 3ality Technica.
But what we can all definitely see that we have surely crossed the "uncanny valley" yet again with DAWN and Caesar looks amazing! The evolution of Andy Serkis into a silicon chip is just about complete! I can't believe the details in his eyes and the random nature and believe-ability of his facial tics. These are things that we humans are already very used to and may not even notice them in other humans, but take that away from a CGI character? Forget it; it's glaring and we see it right away.
I am so looking forward to this second movie of the franchise. Fingers crossed for an amazing story to match the visuals and 3D!
Here is the storyline for the movie:
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.
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES opens on July 18, 2014.
