Director Matt Reeves on 'War for the Planet of the Apes'

Hosted by

Before directing the two most recent Planet of the Apes movies, director Matt Reeves worked on films with much smaller budgets. He tells us how he made the transition to big studio movies, and why he said yes to the ‘Apes’ after turning down other franchise work. He also talks about his method of making his newest film, War for the Planet of the Apes, and why he insisted on shooting the entire movie with actors in motion capture suits before adding any special effects.
