Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Yesterday at Comic-Con, 20th Century Fox took the stage early in the afternoon with a massive task at hand: do something people will remember, even after they watch the Marvel Studios presentation in the evening. It took the entire casts of 2 X-Men movies and an aggressive army of talking apes, but they may have done it. The reactions were strong, including a number of attendees citing the scope of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the intricate nature of the apes’ development of communication.

The photo above is the first released photo from the film, showing Caesar (played by Andy Serkis) leading his troops. After the jump, director Matt Reeves talks about what drew him to the project, what direction they took with the story and some chatting with the cast.
