In order to celebrate the upcoming release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes on Digital HD on Tuesday, November 11, Comicbook.com is premiering an exclusive clip from the bonus features: The Journey to Dawn – Testament to Matt Reeves.
In the clip, the cast, writers and producers of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes share some of their thoughts and experiences on what it was like working with director Matt Reeves.
“Matt Reeves truly seeks the emotional center of every point in a very, very ambitious project,” said Andy Serkis. “And he’s such a hard worker. But in the big machinery of it all, in the huge, behemoth production that this is, he’s managed to get into the center of the drama. It’s always about the reality of the emotion of the scene.”
In 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.
