Meet Maurice in the new clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Video)

We are now just two weeks away from the release of the latest installment in the Planet of the Apes saga, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

On Tuesday, we showed you an interesting new featurette that took you behind the scenes of the film and showed you some of the technology involved in the creation of a film like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Now, we have a look at a new clip from the film that introduces us to Maurice the Orangutan.

As you know by now, Caesar is not particularly interested in a war between the apes and the human survivors. Now that he has a family, all he wants is for there to be peace so that both sides can live their lives without fear of intervention.

While this may not come to pass, there are some apes among them who are with Caesar and his view points. Obviously, Koba is not one of them, but that is another story for another time.

However, one of the apes that is open to communication with the humans is Maurice the Orangutan. In the latest clip from the film, we watch as Maurice wanders into one of the human’s camps where he meets Alexander.

The two of them sit at the camp as Alexander shows Maurice the book he is reading, and even starts to explain it to him as Malcolm and Ellie look on.

What are you waiting for? Take a look for yourselves. Here is a look at the latest clip from the upcoming film Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
