James Franco Has A Cameo In 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' That Even James Franco Didn't Know About

15 April 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was a time when it was hard to imagine being excited for a “Planet of the Apes” movie. When “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” came out three years ago to rave reviews and became a box office success, surely nobody could have seen it coming. Now, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is just a few months away, and it’s pretty safe to say that it’s the most anticipated film in the franchise. Still, while buzz surrounding the film is definitely strong, not everyone is particularly thrilled about what will appear on screen. James Franco may be involved in a plethora of projects on a yearly basis, almost annoyingly so, but if you happen to see him appear in the upcoming 'Apes' film, you will be just as surprised as he is. Franco, of course, was the star of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes, »

The Big Bang Theory Complete Reviews: The Pancake Batter Anomaly

14 April 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

S1 E11, 'The Pancake Batter Anomaly'

Warning: Code Milky Green! Sheldon has caught the flu, and that means everyone suffers. It's bad enough that the man is a hypochondriac, but add in a real illness and he's a terror. Take into account that he's a man-child who can't do much for himself, and it's a recipe for hilarious disaster.

Penny has just returned from a trip back home to Nebraska, and she's stopped in to see Leonard and Sheldon, who have collected her mail for the duration of her trip. When she informs them that the visit was horrible on account of family members getting sick, Sheldon goes into a full panic, taking notes on when they were sick, what the symptoms were, and starts attacking the apartment with Lysol. That night Leonard wakes up to find Sheldon in the kitchen making petri dishes with lime Jell-o (because "someone finished »

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 »

See Charlton Heston's damn dirty postage stamp

11 April 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Planet of the Apes, The Ten Commandments, and Ben-Hur – all places we can see the late actor Charlton Heston’s face. Now we can add U.S. Postal Service stamps to the list.

Heston’s the most recent star to be honored in the Postal Service’s Legends of Hollywood stamp series, which also includes stamps bearing the images of fellow greats like Audrey Hepburn and James Dean.

“In many ways, a nation’s stamps are a cross-section of a culture, its ideals and icons, in microcosm,” Heston’s son, Fraser C. Heston, said in a statement. “As a fervently patriotic American, »

‘Planet of the Apes’ in 2014: The Evolution of Primate Visual Effects

10 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“Apes on Horses! Apes on Horses!” exclaims a giddy title from Badass Digest‘s Devin Faraci in an article about new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes photos being released into the wild. As he continues in his assessment of these new stills from the Fox marketing team, he calls out the fact that early footage never quite sold this new apes film, but these stills do. Their greatest achievement: a sense of realism not yet seen in any of the numerous attempts to bring the Planet of the Apes world to life. Even as impressive as Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was in 2011, there was still a bit of an uncanny valley gap with Caesar (played in motion capture by Andy Serkis). The most impressive CGI ape in that movie was the most exotic, an orangutan that didn’t quite get a lot of screentime. Most »

Spoilers, DS! Watch supercut of infamous movie endings

10 April 2014 5:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

One of the most irritating things in life has to be hearing a spoiler about a movie or TV show. Even just finding out there's a twist in a film can be the worst, just ask Roy Trenneman.

Bearing that in mind, you may want to avoid the following video, which collects some of cinema's most iconic movie endings, including The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects. To be fair, if you haven't seen or at least heard about these endings by now, you've only got yourself to blame. If you're unsure whether to click play, a full list of films is also below.

Films featured: Citizen Kane, Fight Club, Primal Fear, Signs, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chinatown, The Empire Strikes Back, Psycho (1960), Carrie (1976), Scream, The Sixth Sense, The Departed, The Shawshank Redemption, The Crying Game, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), Planet of the Apes (1968), Planet of the Apes (2001), The Mist, »

New Details and Images for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Released

9 April 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We're only a few months away from seeing the Apes back on the big screen battling for control of the planet from surviving humans in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes...and I couldn't be more excited.  At least, that's what I said before seeing these newly released images from the film.  Now, my hype has gone to an all new level of high.  Come inside to check them out for yourself, plus some new details on the plot!

USA Today debuted some all new images from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes this morning and I've been drooling over them ever since.  The VFX work on this film looks like nothing that's ever been done before, taking CGI to a stage of realism in film that's not been achieved.  Rise of the Planet of the Apes pushed the boundaries with mo-cap technology, and now, they've gone even further with Dawn. »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - 10 New Photos

9 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

USA Today

20th Century Fox has released ten really cool looking new photos from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. They give us our best look at the apes and humans in the film so far. When talking about the world that the film is set in, director Matt Reeves said,

"We've got apes on horses. 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."

The sequel has a new cast of human characters that have survived the virus that wipes out most of the population. A few of those characters are played by Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, and Keri Russell, and they reside in a new colony in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco. Reeves went on to talk about the group saying,

10 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Photos with Director Commentary

9 April 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chimp king Caeser is ready to inherit the earth in 10 new photos from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which give us a look at these apes learning about human weapons and how to ride horseback. Director Matt Reeves and cast member Andy Serkis provide commentary for the accompanying images.

The humans have been wiped out from a deadly simian virus, with the highly intelligent ape Caesar ( Andy Serkis) leading an ape nation in a take over of the entire planet.

Andy Serkis reveals Caesar has grown quite a bit since the last time we saw him 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. We see the beginning of their world."

Director Matt Reeves comments on Caesar's care-worn face.

"You can see a real haunted quality."

Caesar Stands Tall in Ten New Stills from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

9 April 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

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.

The follow-up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is set ten years after that movie, and focuses on Caesar as he attempts to lead the colony of apes who he led to freedom from captivity several years earlier. 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 »

Apes Roar (But Will They All Talkc) in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'

9 April 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week I rewatched Rise of the Planet of the Apes, hoping to further invigorate my excitement over Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It worked, and not only am I excited to see this sequel, I'm very curious to see how they handle the apes speaking. In the first film it was largely grunts outside of Caesar's (Andy Serkis) whispered words at the end and, of course, the "No!" moment. But will Dawn feature apes speaking in full sentencesc My guess is their speech will be a mix of competent, broken and none at all with Caesar (and maybe Koba played by Toby Kebbell) probably being the only one truly speaking with any measure of firm grasp of the language. Then again, not only will Caesar have a wife, Cornelia (Judy Greer), in this one, but he also has an infant son and a teenage son. Serkis tells USA Today, »

Which 2014 Movies Could Reach $1 Billion Worldwide?

8 April 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Looking ahead at the 2014 schedule, which movies*if any*have a chance at reaching the coveted $1 billion mark?With Frozen recently passing $1 billion and the Summer movie season right around the corner, now is as good a time as any to dive in to this question.To date, only 16 movies have reached this level in their initial runs (Jurassic Park and The Phantom Menace needed 3D re-releases). With the rapid expansion of the foreign marketplace and the addition of 3D premiums, the chance of getting to $1 billion is higher than ever: in the past three years alone, nine different movies have made it there. Of those nine, only one (Frozen) was an original movie. The rest are sequels, which were all able to grow an existing fanbase (rather than create one from scratch). It should be no surprise, then, that the 2014 releases with the best chance of reaching $1 billion are mostly franchise titles. »

Johnny Knoxville & Tony Shalhoub set to Voice Leonardo and Splinter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

3 April 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Back when filming on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie began, many of us assumed that the actors cast in the various roles, who donned mo-cap suits, would also be providing the voices for the characters (like in Avatar and even Planet of the Apes).  Apparently that wasn't the case, as Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub have been hired on to provide the voices of Leonardo and Splinter, respectively.

Well...this is interesting.  Looks like the actors who were cast to play the leader of the Ninja Turtles group and their Master, will have only been providing the mo-cap work and others will be lending their voices to the roles.  Pete Ploszek was cast as Leonardo with Danny Woodburn brought on to be Master Splinter during filming of the movie.  Now, Deadline has broke the news that their voices will be replaced in the final film.

New Poster and Footage from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

31 March 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

More than eight years have passed since the virus from Rise of Planet of the Apes was unleashed. With much of the human population wiped out, genetically evolved apes are starting to take over. Here’s a look at a new poster and new footage from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be released on July 11th. The movie was directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) and stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, »

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' teaser: Caesar sends in the calvalry -- Video

31 March 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

As a title, Rise of the Planet of the Planet of the Apes was a little premature. The 2011 reboot, starring James Franco and Andy Serkis’s magic, was a stealth blockbuster, but the movie doesn’t exactly end with ape global supremacy.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, on the other hand, might be ready to deliver. In a new TV teaser that premiered during last night’s Walking Dead, we get to see apes riding horses — a notable visual touchstone for those who remember Charlton Heston’s first dust-up with the filthy apes.

It looks like a man-versus-ape world, »

Serkis and Oldman Talk Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

30 March 2014 8:22 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman reveal some plot details regarding the upcoming sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

 

 

Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was one  of the best reboots of a franchise to come along in many years. It set the bar high for its follow-up. The sequel, under the direction of Matt Reeves, carries great expectations from fans. Can the film live up to fan anticipation? From what stars Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman have to say, the film seems very promising.

 

At CinemaCon, Andy Serkis discussed the story. He said, “This is now a community of about 2,000 apes. For the first eight years, after the 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. »

Andy Serkis Talks ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ & His ‘Quite Dark Take’ on ‘The Jungle Book’

29 March 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Director Tim Burton’s 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes was a decade past and some bitter, painful memories still lingered over the much-maligned attempt to revive the franchise. Audiences were skeptical to the say the least in the months leading up to the release of the 2011 prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Rupert Wyatt.

Fortunately, they were quickly won over by Rise, due to its sharp script, smart handling of the universe’s origin story, and the brilliant, nearly wordless motion-capture performance of Andy Serkis (Gollum in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) as Caesar, ...
