New Orleans is currently doubling for San Francisco as director Matt Reeves continues shooting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Superhero Hype has some pictures which show just how much the city has changed since the events of the last movie. As you can see, it's very much overgrown and derelict since the majority of humans were wiped out as a result of a virus which meant that Caesar and his band of apes were able to take control. How do you guys feel about the way this movie is shaping up so far? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below and remember that more photos can be found by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.

















UPDATE: We now have a slightly better look at the city (via _itskaitlynbitch and @Broomhauer) as well as an image which may give us a better idea of the human resistance (via @Dawknesss) towards the apes; who or what are the "Human Nation"? Also below is a video taken of the set.










Directed by Matt Reeves, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer. The movie is set for release on Memorial Day weekend, May 23rd, 2014.

If you magnify the third and fourth pic near the vehicles, you can see ape shit.

Yep, let's judge an entire movie on a picture.

This is getting me excited. Rise of the Planet of the Apes was an AMAZING film. I feel silly, though: I saw it in theatres, and it was only a month ago that I realized it was a statement against using nonhuman animals in biomedical research. Awesome story, awesome direction, awesome cast, awesome theme.

Yup this is for Gusto, Nomis, and Batz!

relations between ape and man are tense:

Excuted for this

And this is why I usually skip early images/photos: no indication of how the end product will be or are they particularly interesting.

Apes > Zombies?
SamHell - 5/25/2013, 10:52 PM
That place has really gone to hell

I'm glad there are still big, blockbuster movies that are shot on real sets instead of green screens. Even if the movie sucks it should get a nod for that.

Looks interesting.
AJST1987 - 5/26/2013, 7:08 AM
Yep my parking garage it literally right by the set. There is also a "Restricted Area" sign on a bridge for the set. Can't wait for them to start shooting.

the first one was probably the most emotional and well acted movie in last 10 years, yes CGI apes put a shame to the crap Hollywood is shitting on us with. When the Gorilla sacrifices his life for Caesar! [frick] I wish a human based movie could make me feel that emotion.
NOLANITE - 5/26/2013, 9:42 AM
I took a poop this morning and it was APE SHIT.
MightyZeus - 5/26/2013, 10:06 AM
Cool
I'm intrigued.
