New Shot Of Andy Serkis Making 'Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes'

Today's been a decent day for new shots of 2014 movies, thanks to Empire's new preview of the upcoming year. Below is a behind the scenes shot of Andy Serkis in his mo-cap gear from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Serkis reprises the role of Ceasar, the first "evolved" ape, and this is another in a long series of photos of the actor encased in a grey suit, but seeing as Serkis remains the pre-eminent mo-cap artist, they never get old. I'm looking forward to seeing some making-of footage from this one, to see how Serkis works his arm extensions into his physical performance.

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.
