Being hailed as the best blockbuster not only of 2014, but one of the best blockbusters of all-time, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has got everyone talking. A follow-up to the excellent Rise of the Planet of the Apes, this sequel picks up ten years after its predecessor and places us in a world that’s ruled by the might ape Caesar (Andy Serkis). A fragile peace has been reached with the remaining human survivors, but tensions soon boil and an all out war breaks out, with only one side able to emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
So far, the film is receiving extremely positive reviews, with our very own Sam Woolf offering nothing but praise for it in his review. In case you missed it, he said the following:
A humane triumph amid the usual summer cacophony, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the most intellectually and emotionally satisfying blockbuster in years.
Earlier this week, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis touched down in New York City for the red carpet premiere. We were lucky enough to be in attendance and managed to catch up with both stars, asking them about their roles in the film, why they got involved in the franchise, how they approach their characters and much more.
