Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


In this sci-fi drama directed by Matt Reeves, Serkis plays Caesar. He’s a leader of a community of genetically evolved apes in the Muir Woods, who are threatened by a group of humans that survive a deadly virus released a decade ago. For that group of humans to survive in that area, they need power, which they can only generate from a dam located in Ceasar’s territory. It is up to Caesar to give them a go head. Co-stars include Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Kirk Acevedo.

The real challenge was finding Caesar’s voice in the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
