"Dawn that the planet of the Apes" arrives in theatre this week as the highest-profile in your ar shot movie to soil in theater so far this year. That, however, doesn"t mean local scenery will be simple to spot. Director Matt Reeves" big-budget sequel is set entirely in the san Francisco area, and also his team does a convincing job of disguising neighborhood shooting locations. That being the case, here"s a cheat sheet spanning what scene in Reeves" film were shot where.

5. The ape village. Reeves" film is collection 10 years after franchise reboot "Rise that the planet of the Apes," in i beg your pardon a simian virus is loosed, endowing apes v superior intelligence while killing turn off the vast majority of the human population. Together "Dawn" starts, we learn that "alpha ape" Caesar and also his 2,000 or so pendant have created their own sprawling community deep in a West coast forest. Those scenes were in reality shot at the shuttered 6 Flags new Orleans amusement park, which has actually been closed since Hurricane Katrina flooded it. The "ape village" wasn"t within the park itself, however. Rather, it was constructed in the park"s expansive parking lot. In the process, Reeves" film joins a perform of noteworthy releases the shot top top the old park property. Others incorporate the adaptation that the family-friendly sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," the Nicolas Cage thriller "Stolen" and the Matthew McConaughey drama "Killer Joe."


1. The human village, component 2. Most function films the shoot in town favor to keep a low profile in the hopes of avoiding problems that crop up v the intrusion of paparazzi and gawkers. Yet when Reeves" film shot in brand-new Orleans in summer 2013, it collection up shop for numerous weeks in level sight -- and also in the middle of the city"s central Business District. Specifics crews built a massive set at the edge of Common and North Rampart streets, one which stands in for the exterior that the "human village." The memorable centerpiece of that set, constructed on a vacant lot, was a towering arched structure that was at some point green-screened into a desolate post-apocalyptic (and computer-enhanced) cityscape. As soon as watching the film, you"ll know that set by the "Zone 2" checkpoint placards, which, because that the movie"s objectives -- and also in a bit of poetic justice the won"t be lost on regional Katrina veterans -- were apparently displayed by an ultimately unsuccessful FEMA in the wake up of the simian flu disaster.
