James Franco Makes an Appearance in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

17 April 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Don't get too excited, kids. James Franco does indeed appear in the upcoming sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, entitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but the part is so minor Franco claims he didn't know!

As reported by The Wrap... “Wait, I have a cameo?” Franco is quoted as saying in Entertainment Weekly‘s summer movie preview issue. “I didn't know that. You know, I don't even think they asked my permission for that.”

In the original Franco played a scientist named Will Rodman, who not only created the super monkey serum that allowed Caesar (Andy Serkis) to become smart enough to lead an army of apes but inadvertently unleashed a virus that wiped out most of humanity, himself included. He'll apparently be appearing via video, maybe apologizing to human survivors — including Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, and Jason Clarke — for ruining their lives.

We Saw the Future on the ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Set

14 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I was fortunate enough to be on the set of Rise of the Planet of the Apes back when it was called Caesar and everyone seemed a little nervous to be following up the disastrous Tim Burton remake. Up until the lights went down at the screening of Rise, I thought it was going to be a slow-burn movie about James Franco’s character dealing with the reality of Alzheimer’s disease through a sci-fi conceit about a drug that made a baby monkey smarter. The only reason I thought that was the thrust of the movie for so long was because we were living in a pre-Caesar performance capture world. There was something about seeing Andy Serkis’ performance as Caesar come entirely from Andy Serkis that I challenge anyone to claim they expected. Gollum is a fantastic technical achievement, yes, but up until his appearance in The Hobbit, after »

HeyUGuys On Set: Witnessing the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Post-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana seems like a perfect place to shoot a film in which the human population has been largely irradicated. There are pockets in and around that city where entire towns have become  completely vacant. Nature has taken back control of areas that once hummed with life. It would seem to be the most obvious setting for the sequel to ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’. However, we aren’t in one of those desolate places – we are in the heart of the the iconic French Quarter. A few blocks from the world famous Cafe du Monde is the set of Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes.’

The Nola financial district is subbing in for the San Francisco Waterfront, some 2,000 miles away. If it weren’t for the camera cranes and a large blue screen above the skyline you wouldn’t have a clue when or where you were. »

New Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Photos

20th Century Fox’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is quickly approaching – the film opens in cinemas three months from today on July 11.

USA Today has the latest photos from director Matt Reeves’ upcoming film.

10 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) USA Today has debuted 10 new images from "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", Fox’s follow-up to the $482 million-grossing "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". The sequel, which arrives July 11, picks up a decade after the events of the first film, with Caesar and his growing nation of apes now threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus. A fragile peace proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of war that will likely determine who will become Earth’s dominant species. “We’ve got apes on horses,” director Matt Reeves tells the newspaper. “There is a sense in the beginning of the movie that apes have inherited the Earth. You see the species as it takes dominion over the planet. It’s an ape-world. That’s the fun of it.” "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, »

12 Monkeys Series Heading to SyFy

9 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Deadline recently reported that SyFy has picked up a new 12 Monkeys series for 12 episodes, starting in January 2015. This series is based on the 1995 Terry Gilliam film starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt

The story for the show "follows the journey of a time traveler (Aaron Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race."

The series also stars Amanda Schull, Noah Bean, and Kirk Acevedo.

I am such a huge fan of the movie, and I completely recommend watching it if you haven't already. Pitt was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the film. He would have won that year had he not been up against Kevin Spacey as Verbal Kint. 

I am excited to see that it is coming to TV. The movie left me »

Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of the summer’s most highly anticipated movies, and these new stills from the sequel are sure to get you even more excited as the spotlight is put on both the incredible special effects work by Weta and the new human cast of characters.

Meanwhile, a virus has wiped out most of humanity, but those left are fighting for survival.

The new dynamics of the now much more advanced society of apes promises to be one of Dawn’s most intriguing aspects, while rumour has it that the next movie will take place in a world even more similar »
