Dawn of Apes more than just an action flick
Jason Clarke, as Malcolm, foreground, and, background from left, Andy Serkis, as Caesar; Toby Kebbell, as Koba; and Karin Konoval, as Maurice; star in the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” The film is the third installment of the franchise using computer-generated scenery and apes.
“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” swings into theaters this week, continuing one of the most surprisingly enduring franchises in movie history.
