Over the past few weeks, we’ve posted an enormous amount of coverage on director Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. We had our set visit (with 45 things to know about the movie), on set interviews with Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, and cinematographer Michael Seresin, new toy images, new movie images and posters, a TV spot, and more. Based on everything I’ve seen and learned, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is going to be a great sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it’s going to show how motion capture technology has advanced over the past few years. I really believe Reeves is going to hit a home-run with this film.
At WonderCon, I landed a great video interview with Reeves. He talked about the film’s concept of shying away from traditional villains, directing while he had pneumonia, whether or not James Franco is in the movie, future sequels, if the next sequel could have a shorter title, what he learned from friends-and-family screenings and the challenge of having people watch the film when it’s not close to done, and a lot more. Hit the jump for the video and full transcript.
