Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Posted: Updated:

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" is an origin story revealing how apes came to rule the earth. Deco caught up with the actors in San Francisco where the movie is set. But it wasn't Hollywood magic that erased the Golden Gate Bridge behind them, it was the fog rolling in. Here's Shireen "foghorn" Sandoval with the story.

The "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" opens with a huge ape family living peacefully in the Redwood Forest near San Francisco. Until a small band of humans stumbles upon them.

The humans are the last survivors of an apocalyptic virus and some blame the apes.

The humans and apes are more alike than different, and Jason Clarke's and Kerri Russel's characters are the first to see it.

Gary Oldman's character is not so trusting.

Gary Oldman: "It's not that I don't trust them, it's just that..."

Kerri Russel: - "You just don't like them."

Gary Oldman: "Yeah, well I'm coming to. No I just don't like them OK? Can I not like them?"

Kerri Russel: "Yeah, absolutely."

Like most he's lost loved ones and they're all struggling to survive. The apes though are thriving.

They don't trust humans much either. Their leader, Caesar, played by Andy Serkis, is willing to try having been raised by one.

Andy Serkis: "Caesar's actually based on a real chimp called Oliver, who I watched a lot of footage of, who was a very human ape. He was known as the humanize."

The apes are evolving and so realistic you can see their humanity.

Jason Clarke: "For me it was more you know, a quiet re-aclimation you know of who we are. And you can see it in the faces. Andy's face or Toby's face within the technology within the picture, and there's a couple of clever little moments and I won't give it away, that shock and surprise and go knock, knock pay attention you know look at it, oh my God."

    Big, bouncing, beautiful butts: that's what pop culture is currently obsessed with. I can't blame people, though. I mean, I get it. I love JLo's luscious curves, Kim Kardashian's arguably more-than-ample derriere, Miley Cyrus' terrific, tail-twerking ways; I'm even warming up to Nicki Minaj's booty-popping song and video, "Anaconda."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.
