New Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Stills

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

We already unveiled one image from the coverage of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes in the brand-new Empire magazine. Now here are three more behind-the-scenes shots from the film, showcasing some human / ape performances before the effects geniuses get to work on them.

Here, you can see Toby Kebbell's furious Koba and his belligerent faction of ape agitators, as well as Andy Serkis' ape-leader Caesar, who seems more warmly inclined towards humans including Jason Clarke's Malcolm and Keri Russell's Ellie. You can also see director Matt Reeves (taking over from Rupert Wyatt) at work.

"This is now a community of about 2,000 apes," says Serkis of this film. "For the first eight years [after the humanity-devastating virus], the apes were looking down from Muir Woods to San Francisco and could see lights and fires, but now it's gone very quiet. Until this day in our film when this small band of humans comes up. That's suddenly a huge, dividing moment in the lives of these apes. There are some particularly strong reactions to the humans and that's the course of the story."

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes hits cinemas on July 17, also starring Gary Oldman, Judy Greer and Kodi Smit-McPhee. For much more on the film, pick up the new issue of Empire, on newsstands both physical and virtual now.
