Andy Serkis Says First 20 Minutes of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is Just Apes

Posted: March 29th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Andy Serkis Says First 20 Minutes of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is Just ApesSubmit Comment
In a new interview, Andy Serkis, who will once again play Caesar in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," revealed some details about the sequel, adding that a third film is on its way.

"The idea would be that this will segue into a third movie, which will lead us back to the origins, which leads us back to the very, very first movie," he said, referencing the 1968 classic.

Serkis went on to say that "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is different from the first movie, because there will be more focus on Caesar and his new ape army. "We start 10 years later. We start with all intents and purposes we think most of humanity's been wiped out," he explained. "The first twenty minutes of the movie, you think you're watching just apes. You forget human beings."

2001:A Space Odyssey did this first you genius, you!

This was a rushed production so I don't really trust it

Deaftone: 2001's "monkey" intro is less than eight minutes, IIRC, not twenty minutes. In fact, it's less than forty percent of this intro.






Anyway, don't care. These Planet of the Ape films are even dumber, and more boring, than the Heston originals, and that's really saying something.

I loved Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

i have to agree with minkowski...nothing screams out memorability like 'damn dirty apes'...sadly i fear studios will try to use those words with a different actor only to make the original THAT much better

I actually appreciated Rise because of that always looming message of "Don't push farther than you should with science" or rather know when to stop. It's perfect that greed and overzealous is what basically brings the fall of man down, ironically to what are considered our weaker genetic links.

@mink

The Dawn of Man sequence at the beginning of 2001 runs for 15 minutes and 15 seconds.

I just take issue with Andy Serkis's statement as if this was never done before in a film.

Damn button

... I love the intelligence here that an entire new series of films is already worse that an original series of films... that were terrible to begin with... based off one movie... that was a pretty damn good reboot.

After Welles and Huston passed, Kubrick was a great f*cking loss for cinema.

@Deaft0ne: that's what I thought, too.

f*cking Kubrick, man, his ways, that's how you combine art and commercialism, although, master Kubrick was more of a technician than a storyteller, but an undeniable visionary.

I think you're missing Serkis' point, Deaftone. He isnt commenting on the length of the scene, but rather on the content. I mean, f*ck. Planet Earth has scenes with apes that run for hours....
minkowski writes:

@Deaftone: you must have watched the extended edition then, because the version I saw was less than eight minutes. But that's not the point.

The point is that the apes are an integral part of this new movie and thus they should enjoy a considerable run-time, whereas 2001's ape intro was a conceptual intro meant to lay the foundation for the film's premise. In that case, then, you should be comparing the first film to 2001's ape intro and not the first twenty minutes or so of Dawn of the Apes.

@Shafe: these movies are already entirely stupid because the premise used to make apes the dominant life form is ludicrous.

In the first series, nuclear war wiped out man, as his now empty niche was filled in time by evolutionary advanced monkeys. Thus a clear parallel could be drawn between the rock that killed the dinosaurs, and gave rise to the advent of mammals, and to the original Planet of the Apes underlying premise.

In the new series, a magical super-virus conveniently makes primates smarter and even more conveniently extinguishes man, thus rendering all his technology useless, so useless in fact the super-smart monkeys use stick and stone instead of RPGs.





In the first movie, quasi-scientific principles are used to lay the foundation for the film series. In the reboot, magical potions are employed instead.

That's why the first series is actually better than this retarded reboot, regardless of which one superficially looks better.

Now go f*ck yourself.
