With Fox currently pushing to get Andy Serkis nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' and with the film hitting Blu-ray and DVD soon, and with a third installment in the works, it was only a matter of time before we started hearing rumblings about the sequel. Director Matt Reeves has begun teasing what we can expect from the next chapter in the 'Apes' franchise -- specifically, what we can expect from Serkis' compelling Caesar character.

There have been few performances as effective and moving this year as Andy Serkis' work as Caesar in 'Dawn of the Planet of Apes.'

Yes, we live in a world where there are dueling 'Jungle Book' adaptations and, no, neither project appears to be backing down. For whatever reason, two separate movie studios have decided that Rudyard Kipling's iconic stories about Mowgli and his animal allies and adversaries deserve a reboot, and the latest shot fired in this showdown is the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the villainous tiger Shere Khan in 'Jungle Book: Origins.'

While 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' ruled the box office this past weekend to the acclaim of many critics, audiences could've received a much different film. From our chat with director Matt Reeves, we learned that an initial story treatment included highly evolved versions of the ape tribe who could speak rather articulately. Now, new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' concept art has hit the web, which seems to be along the lines of this earlier draft.
