Exclusive Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes behind the scenes footage

We at TF towers are hugely excited about the imminent release of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes , so we're hopping up and down like delighted chimps to have gotten our mitts on an exclusive featurette that goes behind the scenes of the sci-fi sequel.

Entitled 'Ape Evolution', the featurette offers a rare look at the likes of Andy Serkis, Toby Kebbell and Nick Thurston performing their ape roles while a real-time CGI version of Caesar, Koba et al mirror them perfectly.

It gives a fantastic insight into just how much of the actors' mo-cap movements end up in the final character, with every furrowed brow and lip curl translating perfectly on screen.

Check out the featurette below...

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes opens in the UK on 17 July 2014.
