Magic of the Serkis
Published 21/07/14



Andy Serkis, the actor who made his name when he played Gollum in Lord of the Rings, returns to the art of motion capture as he embodies, and provides the voice for, a primate called Caesar in this sequel to the 2011 hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Serkis’ performance has been hailed as “extraordinarily expressive” in this movie, whose makers claim to have taken motion capture and 3D to new levels.

The apes are seen riding horses, firing guns, drinking alcohol and demonstrating human emotions.

The plot concerns the prospect of a war brewing between man and ape, 10 years since Simian Flu wiped out most of humanity. In woods near San Francisco, Caesar and his fellow apes have established a thriving community.

By contrast, the human survivors, whose leader Dreyfus is played by Gary Oldman, are running short of power supplies.


The threat of conflict arises after a group of humans led by Malcolm (Jason Clarke) set off on an expedition to get a dormant dam running again. The party crosses paths with two apes, and a human called Carver (Kirk Acevedo) shoots one of them.

Caesar drives the humans away, and a shaky truce is established between the two communities... until an act of betrayal threatens to spark all-out conflict.

l Among other highlights at the Regal this week is... well, something completely different in the form of a screening of Monty Python Live (mostly), the reunion show staged by Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin London’s OČ Arena.

Tickets for the live screening at 7pm on Sunday have sold out, but there is an Encore screening on Thursday and another on Monday, July 28, both at 8pm.
