In anticipation of this afternoon's 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' panel at Comic-Con 2013, Twentieth Century Fox has revealed a new viral (pun intended) website for the film, which warns against the dangers of the Simian Flu -- a disease that, in the fictional world of the 'Apes' films, has now spread to 8.7 million people, making it pretty easy for those apes to take over the world.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Not much is known about 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' Matt Reeves' sequel to 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' but we do know it has a revolutionary aspect and that Caesar (Andy Serkis) will once again be front and center in this continuation of the ape saga. In anticipation of this week's Comic-Con panel for the film, Reeves revealed some details about his vision.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' (the sequel to 2011's surprise hit 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes') has begun filming in Louisiana and we didn't have to wait long to get our first look at the new ape action. Director Matt Reeves tweeted out the first photo from the set this morning and shows us Caesar and his monkey friends have taken a big evolutionary step forward.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' just got a bit more funny. 'Arrested Development' fans are getting amped to see Judy Greer reprise her hysterical role as the boob-flashing Kitty Sanchez in the show's Netflix comeback, but now fans of the funnygirl have another upcoming gig of hers to look forward to.
For a movie about a bunch of hairy apes, 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' sure is building a terrific ensemble of human beings. Keri Russell is the latest name to join the cast, giving us further hope that the human side of this story will be as compelling as that of Caesar and his simian army.
