Keri Russell talks ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ unitards, Andy Serkis

This summer will feature the second film in the new Planet of the Apes franchise: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes poster up close apeSet years after the first film, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Keri Russell (The Americans) star with the cast of primates, led by Caesar (Andy Serkis).

Russell plays a doctor in this summer’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes explains in an interview with Vulture why she’s not “summer big movie” material.

“I’m not really summer-blockbuster-movie material. My boobs aren’t big enough for that,” she says.

Russell reunites with director Matt Reeves who helped launch her career when he co-created TV’s Felicity in 1998.

“When Matt called, I was like, ‘You mean I’d be doing these emotional scenes with grown men in unitards pretending to be apes?’ But Andy Serkis [who plays lead ape Caesar] and I had so many gut-wrenching crying scenes. The unitards weren’t a problem.”     

The film also stars Gary Oldman, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Toby Kebbell, Enrique Murciano, and Judy Greer.  

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens in 3D on July 18, 2014.

Here’s the official synopsis for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes:

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.
