Yesterday WETA held a 30 minute live web broadcast on Facebook to reveal the first footage from the Planet of the Apes Reboot. Today, the first teaser is out. During the broadcast, one of the big revelations was that WETA was able to advance the motion capture tech from Avatar to take it out of the sound stage and actually use it outdoors in real daylight. The broadcast debuted some concept art, and clips from the full teaser which you can see below.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes is basically a remake of the fourth Planet of the Apes movie, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. This time, Caesar is played by Andy Serkis and will be a CGI chimp as opposed to a costume like in the original. The story has also been altered to make Caesar’s intelligence the result of medical experimentation as opposed to being the son of two super intelligent apes from the 40th Century.
