Hello Ceaser aka Andy Serkis! He’s the leader of the new ape revolution in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The film comes out in the UK on the 5th August and also features James Franco, Tom Felton, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow and Brian Cox.
Baywatch, The A-Team and Planet of the Apes are the kind of shows I watched growing up and I’m super excited that the prequel/reboot of ‘Planet of the Apes: Rise of the Apes’ will be hitting our screens on the 24th June 2011. I think that the release date seems a bit rushed considering no production work has been done on the film. However, this time round Peter Jackson’s (The Lord of the Rings, District 9 and King Kong) WETA digital FX company will be providing “photo-realistic” digital apes rather than actors in costume.
Check out the video of the costume process on set of the 1968 film version of Planet of the Apes.
