Why hasn’t Andy Serkis landed at least an Oscar nomination, again?  Yes, I know the argument against him is one part computer-aided performances and one part old-fashioned academy voters, but as this new behind-the-scenes video from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes shows, there’s rather a lot of human expression beneath the apes’ hairy, computer-generated exterior.  If nothing else, this short video will introduce you to the various hero apes by name (though it leaves the names of the actors on the sidelines).  As a bonus, you’ll also get a taste of composer Michael Giacchino’s score in this sample.

Hit the jump to watch the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes behind-the-scenes video.  If you missed any of Steve’s set visit coverage, be sure to check out interviews with Andy SerkisToby KebbellKeri Russell and Gary Oldman,director Matt Reeves, and cinematographer Michael Seresin.  The film also stars Jason ClarkeJudy GreerKodi Smit-McPheeKirk Acevedo, and Enrique Murciano.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens July 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
