Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Are you guys ready for Comic-Con 2014? Fox has just given you another reason to get excited about the San Diego mega convention, with the reveal of the 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Blu-ray set, which comes with a replica of Caesar's head, and can be pre-ordered exclusively at the con! It's one human-made product that we think even apes would approve of.
In its current form, 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' concludes on a dark and downbeat note, setting up a future film while placing its major characters on a desperate new path. But the original ending was even darker and now we have a glimpse at that footage and a look at what could have been.

With 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' now in theaters, marking a high point for this art form, we take a look back at some of the most incredible instances of motion-capture performances, and see how this art form has evolved.
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.
Riding a huge wave of strong reviews and even stronger buzz, 'Dawn of the Planet Apes' opened big for a non-superhero, non-Transformers movie, leading a top 10 that's full of just as many hits as misses. How about we just start at the top and work our way through?
Though he won't admit it verbally, there's something in the tone of Matt Reeves' voice that reveals that he knows that he has something special with his new film, 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.' I suspect Matt Reeves would be a terrible poker player.
A movie like ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ exists only to make money. And it did make money -- a lot of money. And there are a lot of movies that fit into this supposed “blockbuster” (or, if at Blockbuster, the “box office buster”) category. These movie don’t have to be good. People just see them. That’s why it is really notable when one of these movies is as good as ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is.

In the world of 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' it's been 10 years since the events of 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' which means there's a lot we missed out on since the Simian Flu was unleashed on humanity and Caesar became the leader of an ape revolution. If you're curious about what transpired in those 10 years, Fox has partnered with Vice for a series of three short films to help you fill in the gaps.
