The latest TV spot for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' cleanly lays out what's happened since the last film, while also sets up expectations for the war to come. And we're excited. This summer started out a little weak, but the movies keep getting better, and we're hoping that trend continues as we can't wait to see this sequel to 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' next month.
Just the other day, the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' cast was announced with one surprising name we hadn't heard rumored: mo-cap specialist Andy Serkis. The 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' and 'Lord of the Rings' actor will presumably be playing a new CGI 'Star Wars' character in the film, but before he starts on 'Episode 7' he'll be working on the other biggest movie of 2015: 'The Avengers 2'.
It's happened: they've officially announced the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' We knew that original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher would be returning to the roles that made their careers, but it's the new cast members that have us really excited. It's going to be nice to see Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa reunited on the big screen, but it's going to be truly exciting to see what characters director J.J. Abrams will create from scratch.
The new cast members are a fantastic combo of established character actors, on-the-rise stars, living legends and complete unknowns. But, just in case you aren't familiar with them we've assembled a basic primer. Here's what you need to know about each of the new additions to the 'Star Wars' universe!
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has finally announced its cast after a long process that has spanned months of speculation and rumors. The stars of the original trilogy - Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker - have finally been confirmed, and they'll be joined by newcomers to the franchise Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Max von Sydow, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis and Domhnall Gleeson.
From being an ape, to leading them, to now directing them ...
Motion-capture master Andy Serkis, who famously portrayed intelligent ape Caesar in the prequel 'Planet of the Apes' movies and became Gollum for Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' trilogies, will step into the director's chair for Warner Bros.' rendition of 'The Jungle Book.'
Are you ready for the dawn?
At long last, Twentieth Century Fox released the 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' trailer, previewing the next chapter in the longstanding 'Planet of the Apes' franchise. As both the rising ape population and the dwindling human race struggle for their share of the world, which will survive to claim the Earth as their own?
The first 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' posters have premiered online, and Matt Reeves cannot wait for you to see his installment of this beloved franchise. Not only did the director reveal this new batch of one-sheets, but he also announced that the first trailer will hit the web this coming December 18.
