Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set in a post apocalyptic future where a nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar are battling for dominance with a band of human survivors. Emotive themes of family, compassion and betrayal are carried by a cast of fully CG apes who deliver intelligent and emotional performances as believable as their human counterparts.

See how Weta Digital’s on-set performance capture helped artists bring the amazing performances the actors delivered on the film set through to the digital characters in the finished picture, and how we created a startling post-virus San Francisco.
