Avalanche Hits The Set Of "Everest"

18 April 2014 9:41 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Baltasar Kormakur's is currently filming his mountain climbing thriller "Everest" for Universal Pictures. The film deals with a 1996 incident when eight people were caught in a blizzard and died during an attempted ascent to the summit.

Principal photography with the main cast is currently underway at Pinewood Studios in London, but the second unit is currently filming on Mount Everest itself. Earlier today, an avalanche took place on the mountain which killed thirteen people - a wall of ice crashing into 'Base 2'.

At the time, the film crew was acclimating at the foot of the summit and thankfully suffered no fatalities or injuries due to the disaster. Seven NBC News staffers, there for the proposed Everest Jump Live next month, were also on site and unharmed.

Most of the fatalities are said to be climbers and sherpas. Several of the sherpas who were consulting on "Everest" rushed to the scene to help. »

‘Everest’ Movie Crew Safe After Deadly Avalanche, Continuing to the Top

18 April 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The crew working on location for the Cross Creek Pictures and Walden Media film “Everest” is safe from its position at base camp after a  deadly avalanche swept down a climbing route on the Nepalese mountain.

The nine members of the second-unit crew, which consists of professional hikers and cameramen, will remain on schedule to continue acclimating, with plans to summit the mountain early next month. May is peak climbing season, when weather conditions are at their most favorable.

“We just got word that everyone is fine,” Tyler Thompson, a co-founder of Cross Creek, told Variety, “and we are looking to set up some kind of donation to help out some of the affected (Nepalese) families.”

The avalanche killed 12 Nepalese guides around 6:30 a.m. local time and has left four missing in the deadliest disaster on the world’s highest peak. Several more people sustained injuries.

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.

HeyUGuys on Set: Andy Serkis on Returning for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

17 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This is Part Two of our set visit report from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, for Part One please click here.

During a setup change on the blisteringly hot set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes we are taken out of our very comfy video tent, just out of frame of the impressive 3D camera rigs, where we are watching Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee and hundreds of extras react to seeing a large gathering of apes take their position just outside their walls. There is confusion and fear in their eyes. Some have never seen the apes before and some are curious as to why they have showed up in such large numbers.

However, because of movie magic our apes aren’t even on set yet, although we are told we have Mr. Andy Serkis himself waiting for us in his trailer. We quietly »

Caesar leads a simian army in new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' images

15 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A handful of new photos from the prequel-sequel will give fans an idea of what to expect this time around.  Check them out here: »

James Franco Doesn’t Know About His Cameo In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

15 April 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the amount of projects that James Franco is involved in, I guess you can’t blame him for not even realizing that he has a cameo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Yes, he was the star of the film’s predecessor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but he was never expected to show up in the highly-anticipated sequel. Especially since his character, Will Rodman, was wiped out by a “virulent plague.” Despite this, Rodman will still have a posthumous cameo, which Franco apparently doesn’t even know about.

“Wait, I have a cameo? I didn’t know that,” said Franco to EW. “You know, I don’t even think they asked my permission to do that.”

There’s no word yet on how Rodman will factor into the story or how big his role will be, but seeing as Franco didn’t even know about it, »

Movie News: 'Apes' Toys in Action; David Fincher Drops 'Steve Jobs;' Philip Seymour Hoffman in 'God's Pocket' Trailer

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Even in repose, these articulated action figures by Neca, made to tie in with the July 11 release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, look very fierce. Andy Serkis leads the apes as Caesar, while Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman will represent the human race in the movie. [Neca via Collider]   Steve Jobs: David Fincher will not be directing Sony's upcoming big-screen adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs. He was in talks to helm the project, based on a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, his collaborator on The Social Network, but discussions hit a snag -- possibly in regard to his payment and control over marketing -- and so it looks like both Fincher and Sony will go their separate ways. Fincher is finishing...

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. »

Jason Clarke Talks Working with Andy Serkis, His Character’s Relationship to Caesar, and More on the Set of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the interesting things about director Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes is the way the film flips the switch on how animals and humans currently live.  When the film starts, the apes have built a flourishing society in the forest outside San Francisco with Caesar (Andy Serkis) as their leader.  On the other hand, the humans, being led by Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke, are living hand-to-mouth, struggling to survive.  After the events of the first film when the two societies eventually collided...Let's just say neither side trusts the other and that dynamic plays into the rest of the film. During a break in filming last year when the production was in New Orleans, I participated in a group interview with Clarke.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, the great script, working with Andy Serkis and the other motion capture actors, »

Andy Serkis on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: 'Caesar is Don Corleone now'

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andy Serkis reprises his role as primate revolutionary Caesar in this summer's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which moves on the story started in its 2011 predecessor. This time around there's no James Franco or Freida Pinto, but master of performance capture Serkis is back (with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell on human co-star duties) to drive the hotly-anticipated sequel.

Digital Spy spent some time with Serkis on the New Orleans set of Dawn to discuss the Matt Reeves-directed blockbuster.

Where does this film pick up from its predecessor?

At the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we were left in a situation where the virus had taken hold. We got the impression that humanity was under a great deal of threat - which is what happens. The virus spreads and we're imagining that about 90% of the world's population is decimated. There are surviving pockets of humans. »

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

Caesar (Andy Serkis) has grown from his days as leader of a primate rebellion in 2011′s Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. “We see him as a statesman and a leader and someone who has galvanized all of these apes,” says Serkis. “We see the beginning of their world.” Reeves is impressed by Caesar’s care-worn face. “You can see a real haunted quality.”
