Dawn of the Apes Concept Art


What’s that? The movie is “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” you say? Yeah, I know, but like Rise of the Apes before it, I refuse to address a movie with a title that has more than one “of the” in it. Really, we couldn’t have figured out “Rise of the Apes” was tied to Planet of the Apes if “Planet of the” wasn’t specifically in there? Sigh.

Anyway, this is some rather cool concept art from the new film by Jerad Marantz. In it, we see that once upon a time, the idea was to have the apes start to actually wear clothing to become more and more human-like. That obviously didn’t translate to the final film, as the apes wore nothing past warpaint, but I have to imagine that in the inevitable third film, they might start wearing clothes to hide their ape-shame.
