As their 25th birthday issue approaches, Empire Magazine have released a new official behind-the-scenes snap from the upcoming Apes sequel, giving us a look at a mo-cap scene being shot featuring Toby Kebbell's alpha ape, Koba. Check it out after the jump.

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In), from a screenplay written by Mark Bomback, Scott Z. Burns, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. The cast includes: Andy Serkis (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Harry Potter film series), Keri Russell (The Americans, Mission Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (The Prince of Persia, Wrath of the Titans, Rock N Rolla), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, ParaNorman), Enrique Murciano (Traffic, Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (The Descendants, Three Kings, 13 Going on 30). The film hits theaters July 11, 2014

Lost interest in this movie a long time ago due to James Franco not reprising his role.
SuperCat - 3/24/2014, 5:52 AM

Comedian03 - 3/24/2014, 5:55 AM
Wonder what the ape at the far left of the picture is holding up in the air? Kind of looks like a ball-cap.
TheRationalNerd - 3/24/2014, 5:58 AM

It's a hat from what I'm looking Wouldn't be surprised to see poop being thrown at least once.
Bucky - 3/24/2014, 5:59 AM

It's supposed to be dropping anytime now, and Google Days of Future Past in the last hour, and you'll find it.
TheRationalNerd - 3/24/2014, 6:01 AM

It aired very briefly on Good Morning America this morning from Hugh Jackman. And not too sure about the UK time but I just know it'll be released 6am PT and 9am (looks at clock) "which is right now" E.T. lol
