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.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine in the 'X-Men' movies for so long that it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role at this point. Heck, it's hard to believe that he wasn't even the first choice for the role and only nabbed it after Dougray Scott had to pull out at the last second. But before they ultimately cast a (at the time) relatively unknown Australian actor, the first 'X-Men' movie pursued one of the most famous Australian-born actors in Hollywood for the role.

Yep, Mel Gibson could have played Wolverine and concept art exists to prove it.

Some newly revealed concept art from the film essentially confirms this, showcasing the formerly deadly Isla Nublar as a tourist paradise with a massive visitor center that would make the honchos at Disney World nod with approval.

‘Argo’ Concept Art: Check Out Jack Kirby’s Designs for the Real Fake Movie!

Argo Concept Art 6

'Argo' has a good chance of winning Best Picture at the Academy Awards this Sunday, and with all of the hype and box office success, you'd think that every angle of the Ben Affleck film would have been covered by now...but you'd be wrong!

Legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby was commissioned by CIA agent Tony Mendez to create concept art for his fake movie/rescue mission. However, Kirby (played by Michael Parks) only has one line in the film and his involvement in the project is limited to one scene. Now, his actual movie concept art created for the real-life 'Argo' project has been unearthed so you can see the full extent of his contributions.

Early Movie Concept Art: See What Your Favorite Characters Could’ve Looked Like

Just as with scripts, movie concept artists go through many a draft until they get the final approval for their character portrayals. Take Shrek for example. A recent photo posted to Reddit revealed that our favorite green ogre with a hero's heart started out looking more like the star of 'Coneheads.' And Yoda, 'Star Wars'' supreme Jedi master, was originally depicted as a combination of hobbit and elf from the upcoming 'Hobbit' trilogy.

It's safe to say that if things had gone differently -- maybe if one day Pixar studio reps had drank too much coffee than usual and approved the wrong sketches -- all these classic characters, from 'X-Men' mutants to Woody and Buzz in 'Toy Story,' wouldn't have looked the way they do today.
