Let me be very clear: Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best films of the year and a huge step forward for what can be accomplished with motion capture technology, as Andy Serkis has again delivered one of the year’s best performances.  Loaded with incredible performances all around and a great script, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the rare commercial movie that’s also deep and thoughtful.  Dawn is also atypical in that tells a complete story, but also opens the door for another sequel.  Reeves has hit a massive home-run with this film, and I truly hope audiences and critics embrace this special movie.  For more on the film, read Matt’s review.

At the San Francisco press day I landed a video interview with Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Jason Clarke.  They talked about their reaction to the finished film, advances in motion capture and what it was like working with the new technology, how much changed for their characters and the film during production, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Jason Clarke:

  • Reaction to seeing the film for the first time?
  • How much changed for their characters and the film during production?
  • What was it like working with the new technology and actors using motion capture?

    Let me be very clear: We get it. You don’t have to start every article about Dawn like that though.
    Let me be even clearer still: To be fair Frosty isn’t lying. Easily the best film of 2014, will take something special to top it this year.
    No shade either, great interview as usual Frosty.

    Very good movie, easily the best Apes movie since the original, but the hype is a little too much. It’s not as flawless as it’s been made out to be, and it’s certainly not the best movie of the year (or even the summer, EoT is still better). But it is hugely ambitious in how quiet and character-centric it is, and the CGI is breathtaking – I’ll be shocked if this doesn’t win the VFX Oscar.

    It still alwaysweirdos me out to hear Gary Oldman’s regular speaking voice.
    I get a feeling that it was either really early after a long night, or that these 3 weren’t exactly the closest to each other on set.

    “in all fairness” – Excellent film. So far above & beyond expectations.
    Besides Cap & DoFP, this may be the only film I see twice in theatres this year. (GotG has my money as well. We’ll see how much of it.)

    Monkeys with shotguns on horseback was really all this film needed to be.
    And yet … it was so much more ! LoL

    Keri Russell was fantastic in this movie. Smart, strong, and dare I say beautiful. And her character wasn’t angry and bossy like 90% of female leads.(See: The Last Ship)
