Keri Russell Talks DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Plot
Keri Russell, star of the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes thriller from director Matt Reeves discusses the story being told in the film and the role her character plays among the remaining humans.
Even if you haven't kept up to date on interviews, press releases and viral marketing, the plot for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes shouldn't be too surprising. A virus has broken out and it has decimated the human population to incredibly low numbers. Whether that same virus impacted Ceasar's followers or some other affliction kept their numbers equally low, according to Keri Russell, the numbers of both groups are so low each thinks the other side has died out. "I can tell you that it's 10 years after 'Rise' and basically, there's been this virus outbreak and there's very little of civilization alive. The apes that are left don't think there are any humans left and the humans left don't think there are any apes left. Through a set of circumstances, they meet up and it's really about can the two communities exist together. I play one of the existing humans in the colony and I have some medical skills, although it's not like I'm a big fancy doctor...I'm sort of Jason Clarke's girlfriend."
