‘War For The Planet Of The Apes’ Featurette Highlights Motion-Capture Performances

War for the Planet of the Apes
War for the Planet of Apes will conclude Caesar’s story as he tries to protect his family against increasingly hostile humans. Actor Andy Serkis will return in the role and will once again deliver his performance using motion-capture technology. Now, 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette that highlights the work of the actors and special effects team to bring the family of Apes to life.

The featurette includes interviews with cast and crew as they emphasize the importance of bringing human performances to the CGI characters.

You can watch the featurette below!

After the stunning visual effects and performances in the previous two Planet of the Apes films, I’m looking forward to seeing how the team behind the latest film employs the technology and pushes the boundaries of motion-capture acting.

In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the film stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval & Terry Notary.

War for the Planet of the Apes will be released in theaters on July 14, 2017.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up

TrailersEvery year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.

I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.

If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
